The vacation of a famous rock star and her boyfriend in Italy is disrupted by the unexpected visit of an old friend and his daughter.
Screenwriter David Kajganich was on set and also has an executive producer credit on this film. Kajganich ended up being a part of nearly every phase of the production, including post. He was there for a lot of the scouting, for physical prep, and for prep with the actors. During the shoot, he was on set every day making tweaks and adjusting to production needs, and he was also in the editing room with director Luca Guadagnino and editor Walter Fasano, and for some of the ADR sessions. David Kajganich told that this is how Guadagnino likes to work, and it requires so much trust between the writer and director, and such a level of openness and in his experience, directors aren't usually built this way, most directors he met have this fever of ego and insecurity, while Guadagnino has a great sense of play and fairness.
Paul De Smedt:
Harry, come on, that's a grave.
Harry Hawkes: Yeah, well, Europe is a grave.
Penelope tells everyone she is 22 years old and her passport shows a birth date in November 1993, which is consistent with her being 22 in 2015. Later, the police state that Penelope is actually only 17. However, no issue is raised about her having a fraudulent passport (which is a serious matter) and she is allowed to fly home seemingly without penalty. Not even a scolding.
Throughout the credits, and at random intervals, there are images of stylised flowers, particularly noticeable in the section listing soundtrack items.
