Premieres and Fests
Screen Captures, Stills and Behind the Scenes


Adapted from the novel written by Elliot Perlman.

David spent the day at a testing lab to research the part.

The helicopter scene got a bit too close for comfort when the pilot flew in a bit close to David. He landed face first onto the ground and lay still as the copter flew off, scaring some of the crew. Then he got to his feet, walked over to director Rober Connolly and said, "You're turn."

He and Frances O'Connor took Joanna Hunt-Prokhovnik to the movies in order for them to build the relationship they would need to depict in the film.
