Trivia: Little Manhattan
  • Dawson Casting: Charlie Ray was about 13 playing 11 year old Rosemary and Josh Hutchinson as 10 year old Gabe, turned 13 around time the movie opened.
  • Enforced Method Acting: That first kiss the kids have on-camera really was the actors' first.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Perhaps most prominently, this movie stars a 13-year-old Peeta Mellark
    • Bradley Whitford features prominently in a number of movies and television shows including The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
    • Willie Garson, the bellhop, is most known for his roles in Sex and the City and White Collar.
    • An inversion, however, concerns the movie's second lead - it's Charlie Ray's sole acting credit thus far.
  • Write Who You Know: According to the commentary track, Willie Garson was cast in the movie because he's friends with the director and was even his college roommate.
    • Josh Pais, who plays the man Gabe's mother dates throughout the film, is also a personal friend of the writer and director, and is frequently cast in their projects.
