NC-17 | | Drama
A man's carefully cultivated private life is disrupted when his sister arrives for an indefinite stay.
The scene where Brandon hears his sister sing in the restaurant was shot in real time. James Badge Dale and Michael Fassbender had never heard Carey Mulligan sing before so their reactions were real. The scene was shot at 3 a.m with cameras focused on all 3 performers at the same time.
He was crying. He was crying. There were tears coming down his face. I saw it. You made a grown man cry.
When Brandon goes into the office he has unbuttoned the top buttons of his shirt and he clearly wears nothing underneath it. When he heads to the bathroom and he is filmed from the top of his head you can see the collar of a t-shirt underneath his shirt. The V-neck is also there when he is back home at his apartment.
No opening credits apart from the movie's title.
