Bonus Trivia

.

"Back when we were casting, I thought if I could make a genderless movie, that's something I would so love to do. As we go into the next century, can we please leave some of our identity politics back here? Cinema is so that's one thing it should do. Films are out different reasons, but a movie like 'Bedrooms & Hallways' happens to be out there for a similar reason to, I think, 'The Object of My Affection', which is to further an understanding and to loosen a grip on what is right and what is wrong and say that these things are understandable. Can we not treat them as being so different any more?" --Rose Troche to Andrew L Urban at Urban Cinefile (www.urbancinefile.com.au)
