It's reported that Steven Spielberg was a fan of the script and considered directing the project before John Madden was hired. It was ultimately decided that Spielberg's availability was too far out to serve the expectations of the production. See more »
(45:55) At Peterson Wyatt, where all lobbyists are now gathered, Elizabeth asks for "arguments and rebuttals". Alex then starts writing on a board the first four letters of "National Register". The camera switches to Elizabeth speaking, then, when camera returns to Alex, the size and position of the writing are clearly different : bigger and more to the left. See more »
Dildos are illegal in Texas, but Joe Public can walk into a sports store and walk out with a shotgun.

I picked this movie without prejudice, as I hadn't heard a word about it. And I loved it!!!
The tempo is sustained, the performances outstanding. An interesting story with a twist, well written, and the perfect cast.
One element that also enhances the movie: its diversity. Multi-faceted characters which gives spice to the story's meat.
The only downside: the way love is given a bad name. How do you want the youth to connect if you keep telling them that love ain't the sh*t?? It is a recurrent theme in 21st century cinema that i condemn, because it perpetuates mechanic sex--humans deprived from feelings. I am for a little more optimism in that domain and the human species.
My 2cents; LM ARNAL
