Trivia

Sofia Coppola had Nicole Kidman in mind when writing the screenplay and added that to see the actress bring the role to life was even more than she could have imagined; "I think she's unique. It was like watching a virtuoso or an incredible athlete. We'd do a scene, and she'd have five different emotions going on at the same time." See more »

Goofs

Though set in Virginia, the film repeatedly includes exterior shots of trees with hanging moss. Hanging moss does not grow in any part of Virginia. The latitude of Virginia is far too north. See more »

Only movie patron's beguiled here
6 July 2017 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Don't waste your time or money. Sofia Coppola was a terrible actress (Godfather III - LOL) and now we can say she is a terrible Director as well. She obviously did not inherit any of her father's artistic talents. Zero. The only beguiling happening with regard to this movie occurred when watching the trailer. I was tricked. The trailer is deceptive and in it's 2 minutes and 33 seconds it out entertained the entire 94 minutes of the actual movie.

40 minutes into this disaster I was wondering if a plot would materialize, it didn't. I then began wondering if this was a build up to a chaotic second half (sort of like The Hateful Eight) but it never happened. As a matter of fact, I was so shocked at the last five minutes that when the final fade occurred and the credits began to roll, I actually burst out laughing.

American Zoetrope should be taken to task for releasing this garbage and I certainly will not see another movie that has anything to do with Sofia Coppola. If I had to leave on a positive note I would say they spared us be only making it 94 minutes long.
