Goofs

Wilson's cellmate is reading Psalm 23 (and Wilson repeats after him) from the Good News Bible (Good News Translation), but the words they are speaking are the King James Version: "...he maketh me lie down in green pastures, he leadeth me beside the still waters, he restoreth my soul." (1:04:53-1:05:10) Also the cellmate is holding the Bible open to about 1/3 of the way through, but the Psalms are around the midpoint of the Bible. See more »

Quotes

Wilson: We all want people to love us for exactly who we are but that's not really possible in this world because we're just all too unbearable. You know, we gotta make the best of what we have.

Very good film
27 November 2017 | by bykouSee all my reviews

A close view to people they try manage their unbearable lives. An interesting scenario with turns and Woody as always great, simple and to the point. Good playing of the cast. When everything is lost, always there is something, even fake,that gives meaning to our lives. A good film makes you search deeper. Not for under 15.
