Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Bought by Lionsgate Films for $750,000 (US Dollars).
  • Writer-director Sarah Polley had intended her feature film debut to be based on a script she wrote about a 12-year-old actress starring on a television series. She was unable to get the project green lighted, and turned to another, an adaptation of one of her favorite short stories, Alice Munro's "The Bear Came Over the Mountain". The story deals with a couple in their Sixties coping with the wife's Alzheimer's disease.
  • 'Sarah Polley' adapted the short story "The Bear Came Over the Mountain" specifically for Julie Christie.
  • The movie somewhat mirrored actor Gordon Pinsent's real life, when his wife, actress Charmion King, died of emphysema in January 2007, four months after "Away from Her" premiered.
