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.
You should come and hear me.
Brandon Sullivan: Yeah, I will.
Sissy Sullivan: "Yeah, I will"? Like, "Yeah, I will," like last time?
Sissy Sullivan: Please come.
Brandon Sullivan: Where'd you get this, anyway?
Sissy Sullivan: It's vintage.
Brandon Sullivan: Yeah, I can see that.
Sissy Sullivan: Wow.
Brandon Sullivan: Do you like?
Brandon Sullivan: Yeah.
Brandon Sullivan: Please come.
Brandon Sullivan: Okay, I will.
Sissy Sullivan: Yay.
The healing progress of Brandon's bruise on the cheek is completely random. Sometimes it's almost open and bloody, sometimes it's almost closed. At most only a few days pass between him receiving it and the last scene.
No opening credits apart from the movie's title.
