Nancy Taylor: I'm sorry you wasted your life on this. Your brother killed that woman.
  • Screenwriter Pamela Gray says she doesn't believe the awards or critics; she knows if her projects are well received by listening in the theater ladies' room after a showing.
  • Although the family of the murder victim Katharina Brow requested a meeting with producer/star Hilary Swank, that has not happened. They have hired Gloria Allred with intention to sue Swank for not consulting them or putting their mother "in a better light."
  • Hilary Swank didn't meet her real-life character Betty Anne Waters until just before the filming began. She says she wanted to get into the character, not just mimic someone.
  • The rights first flowed to Andrew S. Karsch because he had a connection to attorney Scheck, Barry of the Innocence Project; for starters, they are neighbors in the same Brooklyn Heights building.
  • The impetus for the movie was a 60 Minutes (1993) piece broadcast in 2002, after which there was a frenzy for the film rights.
