Director Marc Webb expressed interest in the project a full 12 years before it hit theaters. He was committed to directing The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel first, though upon completion of those two films he agreed to direct the "The Only Living Boy in New York". See more »
The letter sent to Thomas by the Penguin Group at the end of the film has a typo in it: where it reads 'I with you every success with your book...' should actually be 'I wish you every success with your book'? Didn't expect that from the 'Penguin Group'. See more »
GREAT movie. Admittedly it starts just a little slow but is still very interesting to watch. It then picks up and only gets more and more interesting.
It's very poetic and even days after you've watched, it stays with you.
It is not for the closed minded or for people who only like fast moving action or typical romance movies.
It has different outcomes than you'd expect and every bit along the way is very genuine and very well acted by everyone in it!
It is very real life and warm while also heart-breaking and lovely.
It is full of depth in each and every single character!
I watch this over a weel ago and it just keeps popping into my thoughts.
Highly recommend it!
