Behind the scenes (one camera, no floodlight, tight schedule and looks like they had fun making it):

Highlights: script was rejected more than hundred times over 12 years, loosing financing few weeks before shooting, decision to go with one handheld camera, no rehearsals, adjusting script to limited time/budget, preparation for roles.

Second to August: Osage County, this has one of the worst titles ever.  It sounds like some sort of real estate drama.

yeah well, once you see the film the title makes total sense.
i liked it, but had some small problems with it.
the acting by the two leads is the best about it. there's no denying that. but the film does looses steam in the second half, as it becomes another "BASED ON A TRUE STORY" drama that seems more fit for a tv movie than a theatrical release.
