"Then they just want to be little girls again." - Jennifer Estep

"It's very difficult to find the time or the money for people to organize rehearsals for some movies. It staggers me how little preparation often goes into these scenes which are difficult and complicated. You think, "God, it's crazy. I've never met this person before and here I am having to work at how to do a whole performance on the set." It was great to have a few days of just talking to Michael [Caine]and Daniel [Barber] and thinking about the characters and the relationship between them before we started shooting." - Emily Mortimer

"We can each sit and wait to die, from the very day of our births. Those of us who do not do so, choose to ask-and to answer-the two questions that define every conscious creature: What do I want? and What will I do to get it?

Caine teaches us that the answer is always found within our own experience; our lives provide the structure of the question, and a properly phrased question contains its own answer." - Matthew Woodring Stover
