Trivia

Jamie Dornan called Louis Drax "Lloyd" right before his first nightmare. This mistake not only made it past the crew, cast and director on set, but wasn't even fixed with ADR and is noticeable in the final cut of the film. See more »

Quotes

Louis Drax: Pascal made the mistake that all men make. He thought that because Mommy is so beautiful, then she must be good.

Tell a Story about reality
13 June 2017 | by Rickard ErikssonSee all my reviews

So I sat on Sunday evening with nothing to do and this movie came up as a recommendation. I clicked on, it at starting watching. The main plot is simple, it's about Love — nothing more. Then it cuts down to a few minor plots that leads to the main plot in the movie, every moment wasn't there just to fill a movie script, it meant something for the whole movie even the small details.

I loved this movie, and I give it a 9/10
