Trivia

When showing his shelter for the first time there are 3 jars of Vegemite. This is an Australian yeast extract spread (like the UK's Marmite) much loved by some in Australia, but an acquired taste. It does have a very long shelf life and a little goes a long way, so could be a favourite of 'preppers'. See more »

Goofs

Ed gives Ronnie a flower bouquet composed of red flowers, which subsequently becomes a bouquet with white and yellow flowers. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ed: [talking to his son on the phone] What I'm saying is that it's more than what it seems, that's all. Much more.
Ed: People don't know, because they're too busy with their game shows and football and silliness to take the time to look and read and figure it all out. Who is it that said, "Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see"? These are interesting times we're living in. That's another saying. Chinese. Actually, it's a curse. All you have to do is look and learn to connect...

Yard Sale
1 June 2019 | by Intermissionman_See all my reviews

The main reason I go to see Films is to get away from things for a couple hours and try and put myself in the shoes of the Story. This Film is a perfect one to do that with. So instead of work today, I jumped on my Bike and pedaled to the Cinema. Have been wanting to see this Film as I read some of the publicity for it and am big Fan of both the lead actors and have seen a Ton of their Films. John Lithgow and Blythe Danner Star as Ed Hemsley and Ronnie Meisner fictional characters created by Writer Director and Director of Photography NOBLE JONES. Ed and Ronnie are both on the wrong side of 60 and meet at the Grocery Store. I recommend you watch the Trailer NOW and see if this appeals to you. If so all you gotta do is put yourself in Ed and/or Ronnies Shoes and this story will wash away a Bad Day. On a personal note I am about half way thru the Masterclass online with Director Ron Howard which I also recommend, as it is an indepth class on how to bring a Story to Life on Film. Listening to Him teach his Craft is Deep. Ironically rode by a Yard Sale on the way Home and thought of how a scene could be shot.
