Trivia

Paul Bettany decided to film Jennifer Connelly after his experience with giving a homeless person a $20 bill. The scene, in the beginning, shows Connelly at an angle that would be from her perspective, as opposed to seeing the full frame with people giving her money. This is because Bettany gave a homeless man a $20 bill while walking into a store, received thanks from the man, and walked out to see the man put out his hand again. When Bettany told the man he had just given him $20, the man said, "Oh, that was you," to which Bettany realized a perfect frame would not be the whole picture but rather what is in front of them.

Goofs

When Tahir pulls Hannah off the fence on the bridge and they both struggle on the ground, in the far away shot his arm is around her neck, but in the next instant in the closeup shot his arm is around her chest/torso. See more »

speechless......!
16 November 2015 | by eleventh-warriorSee all my reviews

I have no words for this beautiful and unexpected piece of gem...i watched it and not sure what is all about ...but after watching it i was speechless....great topic and sure an eye opening subject ...Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Mackie did a well job with their role...and i am surprised why its not well rated.i don't know why the junk movies are well rated that the producers are making and remaking it again and again...Paul Bettany is clearly sending a message with his debut direction and writing ..that he can do something with a topic that no other famous directors even bother to see.. its a powerful drama and worth watching... i think it deserve more than the average stars ...Go see it with your heart ...i am sure you will not regret it..
