In an interview on National Public Radio, Elisabeth Moss said that none of the film is improvised. Despite the fact that some of her dialog feels spur-of-the-moment, even nonsensical, Moss said that everything she says on screen was on the page, and that it was the hardest dialogue she'd ever had to memorize.

Unsure of 6 or 7
I rather liked this. I do think it was disjointed with the little back shots and all over the place. At times I wasn't sure what was past or present. It wasn't believable that they were at a level of fame they supposedly were and was she just a drunk? I only saw the British or Australian doing them. I think the could of expounded more on the leads life and how she came t be where she was than relying on madsens verbalizing some of it. I think for me I liked it better after she got sober but she was so bizarre acting tho she was as a drunk too. Have't seen Eric Stoltz in anything in a while and to the reviewer who said Amber Heard should of played the lead?!? Lol. Idk. Everything I've seen her in she's horrible and wooden. To wrap it up I'd say give it ago by the end I was thinking to myself " that was pretty good"!
