PG-13 | | Drama
A college professor travels to New York City to attend a conference and finds a young couple living in his apartment.
According to the DVD's interviews of both Tom McCarthy and Richard Jenkins, Walter's change of glasses scene (which reveals his change of feelings for Mouna) was Richard Jenkins's idea.
Prof. Walter Vale:
We are not helpless children!
When Walter gets his first djembe lesson, Tarek explains that all Western music is in 4/4 time (which is not true). He then says djembe music is in 3/4 time (also not true), and he proceeds to teach Walter his first rhythm, in syncopated 4/4 time.
