PG-13 | | Drama, Fantasy, Romance
Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) longs to escape his small southern town. He meets a mysterious new girl, Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert). Together, they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history, and their town.
Writer and Director Richard LaGravenese wanted as little greenscreen as possible. In the Caster holiday dinner sequence, the set was built so that the table would spin with the actors and actresses on bolted chairs. The floor beneath the table would also spin, in the opposite direction, with Alice Englert and Emmy Rossum strapped to "parade float" stands. The entire set was built on hydraulics so it could be rocked. On a speed scale of 1 to 10, the actors and actresses are spinning at an 8. The sequence took three days to shoot. LaGravenese, a victim of motion sickness, took Dramamine to direct it.
Did you go for a run last night?
Ethan Wate: Yep.
Amma: Did it help you sleep?
Ethan Wate: I envy people in comas.
The writing on Genevieve's locket changes from a simple type to a fancier type.
