The film interlaces two stories set fifty years apart, switching frequently between them. Each tells the story of a child's quest. In 1927, Rose runs away from her father's New Jersey home to find her mother/idol, the actress Lillian Mayhew. In 1977, recently orphaned Ben runs away from his Minnesota home in search of his father..
Director Todd Haynes had some of the hearing cast go on a walking tour of New York City with noise-canceling headphones to be able to relate to Rose's story and experience some of their other senses heightened. See more »
When Ben enters the rotunda of the American Museum of Natural History, he walks past the mounted skeletons of the Allosaurus attacking a Barosaurus defending its young, as seen in the museum today. However, this exhibit was not mounted until 1991, and wouldn't have been seen in 1977. See more »

Unbelievably dull. Turned it off. Don't bother. Nothing positive to say. Save your time and money.
