Annika has a pet turtle named Lynn. According to Lynn Shelton on her director's commentary, this was in the original script and not a reference to her. The turtle's real name is Shelly, which also happens to be similar to the director's last name. It was originally a dog before being changed to a turtle for budgetary reasons. See more »

Italian DVD is about 2 minutes longer. The scene that starts during the opening titles goes on and then cuts to where the US version starts showing a "10 Years Later" sign. Another brief conversation scene is from a different take and has a different, longer dialogue. Running time of Italian DVD, which is PAL, is 1:37:02. In NTSC that translates to 1:41:10. US edition is 1:39.13. See more »

Kiera, Sam and Chloe - Three extraordinary Actors. The Director Sucked Me In, And I Was Hooked
Wasn't expecting to like this film as much as I did.
First, Sam Rockwell has got to be one of the best actors to work with. He is naturally cool and his confidence on screen must be contagious. Have never seen him put up anything but an A-Game performance.
Second, no one plays the girl we all want to fall in love with (who is sincere, cool, fun, and romantic) than Kiera Knightley. Kiera and Sam? Would never see it working on paper. Totally worked on the screen.
Third, Chloe Grace Moretz is one talented and poised young actress whose resume is amazing at such a young age. I anticipate Chloe will take home a lot of hardware in her career.
Finally, Lynn Shelton paces this film perfectly. Her best effort to date.
I love this movie. I just saw it for the 3rd time (May 2020)... Trust me, and see this movie. Let the story develop and unfold ("wait for it"), and I bet you say the same thing by the end.
Nicely done to all involved! 👏👏👏
