- Adaptation Displacement: It's a pretty obscure film, but it's still better-known than the original novel by Richard Miles.note
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The prostitute that Frances talks to in the women's room looks a bit like Amy Winehouse.
- Jerkass Woobie:
- Frances is extremely creepy, but clearly bears some serious emotional wounds from her domineering parents.
- The Boy also comes from a messed-up family, but his continuing to manipulate Frances via his mute act starts to seem cruel after a while.
