Did You Know?


As the end credits roll there are quick glimpses of future newspaper articles to round off the characters' stories: Dorottya gains a CGGB award, Sophia appoints Joseph as a CEO to the Gifford Foundation, and Sir Michael weds his longtime companion, Millie. The latter appears as a "Kent Advertiser" piece in 2017 (this movie's release date was 2016) for the date of October 21, stating the best man as Sir Roger Moore (who appeared earlier in a cameo at the awards ceremony). Sir Roger Moore, however, died in May of 2017. See more »
