Trivia

Frances McDormand nicknamed the van used in the film "Vanguard", which she decorated with her own personal items and slept in during the shoot. Eventually she stopped doing so because "it's much better for me to pretend to be exhausted than to actually be exhausted", she told The Hollywood Reporter. See more »

Quotes

Bob: One of the things I love most about this life is that there's no final goodbye. You know, I've met hundreds of people out here and I don't ever say a final goodbye. I always just say, "I'll see you down the road". And I do. And whether it's a month, or a year, or sometimes years, I see them again.
