Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • SPOILER: Although producer Stephen Woolley was immediately taken with Neil Jordan's script, he met with zero interest in America. The general consensus was that the Jaye Davidson role was uncastable, and the film's mix of sex and terrorism would prove unpalatable with audiences. And that the press would divulge the film's big twist. Eventually Woolley was able to drum up the necessary budget from British, European and Japanese sources, but then had to contend with the financial collapse of his production company, Palace Pictures. When Miramax, who had initially rejected the script, saw the finished product, they immediately made an offer to distribute the film in the USA, with a clause in the contract that they would push the film for Oscar consideration.
  • The film was shot on such a shoestring budget it actually came very close to running out of funds.
  • Producer Stephen Woolley owned a repertory cinema in London called the "Scala", when there were funding issues with the film Woolley ended up borrowing money from the Scala to keep the production afloat.
  • Neil Jordan originally intended to title the film "The soldier's wife", however he was advised by his friend Stanley Kubrick to change it. Kubrick recommended this change because he believed that films with either religious or military titles usually deterred audiences and were often financial failures (something that Jordan had experienced when his religiously titled movies The Miracle and We're No Angels flopped at the box office). Jordan selected the new title title from a 1960s hit British pop song.
