  • Enforced Method Acting: All the actresses were required to read the books their characters were assigned.
  • Fake American: Brits - Emily Blunt as Prudie, Hugh Dancy as Grigg and Lynn Redgrave as Sky. Canadian Kevin Zegers as Trey.
  • Playing Gertrude: Despite playing Trey's teacher, Emily Blunt is only a year older than Kevin Zegers.
  • Reality Subtext: Marc Blucas plays a character obsessed with SA Spurs. In reality he had played college basketball with the star player Tim Duncan. This was a complete coincidence.
  • What Could Have Been: Kathy Baker was originally cast as Prudie's mother Sky, but ended up playing Bernadette instead.
