Krisha is seen with a missing portion of her finger, which is never explained throughout the film; in real life actress Krisha Fairchild lost the tip of her index finger while trying to break up a dogfight shortly before the start of filming. She wanted to back out of the film because of the injury but eventually agreed to stay on. See more »
I don't know where that "comedy" label on IMDb comes from. I don't think it functions even as a black comedy. Absolutely heavy and quite dark, but fabulously written, directed, and acted. There are many films that deal with this sort of premise (even Rachel Getting Married comes to mind) but this really took it to another level. Completely immersive, watching it all unravel just hurts to watch. Not an easy viewing by any means and definitely one that will divide audiences completely (even on this board, I can see many people hating it). I loved it though, easily one of the best of the year so far. Krisha Fairchild should absolutely be in contention for end-of-the- year awards, and Trey Edward Shults shows a lot of talent.
