Trivia

When Rose (Millicent Simmonds) writes Lilian Mayhew (Julianne Moore) in the Mayhew stage's room to talk her, Rose uses her left hand to write. When Mayhew replies Rose writing, Mayhew too uses her left hand to write. In real-life both Simmonds and Moore are left-handed. See more »

Goofs

When Ben enters the rotunda of the American Museum of Natural History, he walks past the mounted skeletons of the Allosaurus attacking a Barosaurus defending its young, as seen in the museum today. However, this exhibit was not mounted until 1991, and wouldn't have been seen in 1977. See more »

Incredibly slow and pointless for most of the film
3 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Went to see the film without knowing anything about it except Julianne Moore being in it - normally a strong sell for me.

I was exceptionally close to walking out of the theater for over the first hour. Not because the performances were bad or anything, it was just... pointless. Devoid of drama, impetus, momentum. There was nothing. It was like watching a sophomore film-maker discovering his camera for the first time, and just "filming neat things".

There's about 25 minutes of good film in here, but that's what they should have made - a 25 minute short film.

Those 25 minutes were touching, but not as much as the thought of getting 2 hours of my life back.
