Trivia

Surprisingly, Harris Dickinson the actor who plays Frankie in the film was actually too fit to play the role before filming began. "I got there and, without sounding arrogant, director Eliza Hittman told me that I was a bit too in shape," he recalled. "She told me to kind of eat what I wanted for a bit, because it wouldn't be right. Frankie is amongst a community of people where going to the beach and having your top off is such a big part of summer, so there's pressure to work out, but also they're not quite hitting the mark in terms of being in top-notch shape. They'll do, like, chest and arms." See more »

I'm not a critique or very affluent in English, but I found this movie to be extremely enjoyable. Harris Dickinson gives a brave and enduring performance as the main character.
