When the film was originally scheduled to start filming in middle October 2010 for two weeks, Rachel Weisz was set to play Emily Blunt's sister, so the actress could complete her part and start filming The Deep Blue Sea (2011) in November. However, filming of Lynn Shelton's movie was postponed, making Weisz pull out due to schedule conflicts with The Deep Blue Sea. Rosemarie DeWitt replaced her, and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for her performance. See more »
This is the first time I have ever felt so strongly about a movie to write a review. I watched it on an airplane yesterday and cannot stop thinking about the characters. I can't get over how real they were and how great the acting was. I laughed and cried and wanted to be friends with them. The end kills me though! I need a sequel!! Or I've even kept imagining a television series. I would LOVE to be able to continue watching these characters and see their lives play out. When I saw the preview, I thought, hmm this should be interesting with just 3 people in the movie pretty much the whole time, but I seriously loved it and thought it was brilliant. I didn't want it to end!
