Michael Patrick Lane,
The film lost its hiatus and ended up shooting the winter scenes in 90 degree summer heat in NYC, much to Paul Bettany's chagrin in which he stated, "Who could find a tree in New York without a fucking tree in it? Just so much green." See more »

I didn't know what to expect from the short summary, but I love Anthony Mackie so I watched. I was mesmerized from beginning to end at the intimate view of homelessness, the sense of being invisible and unworthy was palpable. The love story between the main characters seemed a little forced at the beginning, but midway through their chemistry was obvious. They want to save each other. It was beautiful, sad and haunting. Anthony Mackie's portrayal of the Nigerian refugee struggling to overcome his past losses was heart wrenching. Jennifer Connelly's portrayal of a heroin addict is an unsympathetic role and she does a great job being an awful person. Their connection seems very slight at first; the evolution of their relationship seemed very dependent on both of their losses.
