Sasha Lane was the second choice for Star. Andrea Arnold had originally cast and rehearsed with a completely different girl, but she backed out two weeks before filming started. Director Andrea Arnold had to slightly rewrite the scripts for Star and Jake due to this. See more »

People tend to hate something that is different, that is a fact. This movie is different, so do not expect to compare with any other movie. In my opinion if you watch this just for pleasure, you will enjoy the ride. The acting is so real, cinematography is great and also both lead actors. The plot is... there is not a real plot so just try to understand the message, try to be openminded and consequently try to love something different. This is not Twilight.
