The film was shot in Brooklyn where Paul Dano lives with his girlfriend Zoe Kazan who plays female lead in the piece.
Nobody knows when this film would be complete and shown, in January 2012 Paul was still editing it.
"Franklin and Matilda, as two lovers captured at various moments over the arc of their relationship. A family affair—Maya Kazan, Zoe's sister, is producing the film, and Paul's sister Sarah is also working on set—the gang is currently shooting at various locations in and around the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn, where Dano and Kazan live. They filmed a scene at the restaurant People's Republic of Brooklyn on Smith St, in the bathroom of friend Michelle Williams' home. " ( x )
“I wrote the film after watching Antoine et Collette, The Truffaut short,” said Paul. “I wanted to shoot something in NYC in black and white. I’ve never had the chance to act in something black and white,” he said. “So I had to direct something instead.” (x)
