Some internal shots, also included in the trailer, were filmed in McLean's Mansion. One of New Zealand's most significant domestic heritage buildings, it was heavily damaged in the 2011 Christchurch earthquake, and although it has the highest historic places trust entry, is under threat of demolition. That goes well with the film's story line. See more »
Ann uses a Celsius thermometer, despite all of the references to the film taking place in the United States. Fahrenheit thermometers are ubiquitous in the States, Celsius thermometers are much more common in New Zealand where the film was made. See more »

I was a big fan of Margot Robbie's work in The Wolf of Wall Street. I thought it was a fun, charismatic, electric turn, but I wasn't necessarily sure if that meant that she was an actual, capable dramatic actress. This really proves that she's one to watch out for. Although all three performers deliver some strong work, it's her moving, resonant performance that really stuck with me. I kept hearing a lot of negativity towards this film's ending and so I was sure it would be something out of left field, some turn or twist or something. It wasn't really any of that, and I actually loved the ending. It was semi-ambiguous, although not really, and the last scene was just pure magic and worked to conclude the film, beautifully. Definitely a very underrated, underseen film that I wish I had heard about before.
