Trivia Production had to take a break to allow Matt Bomer time to lose forty pounds for his physique, to display that his character is dying of AIDS. Bomer admitted that the weight-loss took a toll on his health, and that by the time he filmed his final scene in a hospital bed, he was genuinely too weak to get out of the bed between takes without assistance.

Goofs When Felix is riding the subway while observing a rider with lesions, the subway car is immaculately clean and graffiti free. During the early-1980s (the time this film takes place), New York City subway cars were notoriously gritty looking with graffiti covering the inside and outside of the cars. Police officers were also a common sight as crime on the subway was at an all time high. During the late 1980s, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) which oversaw the city's subway services purchased a newer model from Canadian manufacturer Bombardier that was made of graffiti-proof alloys and had a different seat layout from previous trains. This model is the one used in this film. See more »
