Trivia

It is the second collaboration between Dan Gilroy and Jake Gyllenhaal as well as Rene Russo after Nightcrawler (2014). When it comes to the crew it is the third film Gilroy had Jennifer Fox as the producer, John Gilroy as the editor, and Robert Elswit as the cinematographer. The only major change is Marco Beltrami as the composer, which makes it the first time James Newton Howard was not scoring for a Dan Gilroy movie. See more »

Goofs

Several characters are seen smoking in the galleries. This is a major breach of etiquette in the art world and likely against laws regarding smoking in public (filmed in Miami, there is a Florida statute banning public smoking). See more »

Acting is not enough
2 February 2019 | by fmwongmdSee all my reviews

Although Jake Gyllenhaal does a good job acting it isn't enough to rescue this uninteresting film.
