Trivia

Joseph Greco: The scene at 41:55 of the South Florida State Hospital as Chris sees it through a chain link fence is a cameo of sorts - the director is one of the "workers" walking past the building, "not because I wanted to, but because we had no one else and I needed someone in the background, walking, to liven up the shot."

Goofs

John Marino's seat belt is straight (at around 36 mins) while he is driving Chris home from the Sailorman store, but it is twisted just before and just after. See more »

Quotes

John Marino: You thought of a name for the boat yet?
Chris Marino: How 'bout "pain in the butt."
John Marino: So you want me to name it after you.

Superb film and acting
21 April 2007 | by klaubermSee all my reviews

I saw the film at the Sarasota Film Festival. At it's completion, the entire audience gave the film a standing ovation - truly a rare occurrence. I felt the performances by Joe Pantoliano and Marcia Gay Harden were inspired, the film provided a compassionate perspective on schizophrenia and the story was compelling. The subject is challenging to begin with, but this story not only highlighted a serious, often unspoken disease, it bought it out in a light that will prove inspirational for those who have been exposed to this life challenge. I was amazed at the realistic performance by young actor Devon Gearhart. Congratulations to Joe Greco - definitely a young filmmaker to watch!
