At the beginning of the film, workers apply a "Notice for Removal" tag to a diseased tree. The tag reads "City of Gross Point Parks Department." This is a misspelling of Grosse Pointe, Michigan - a bordering suburb of Detroit - and the city in which both the book and movie take place. Jeffery Eugenides, the author of the novel, was born in Detroit and attended University Liggett School in Grosse Pointe.
