Trivia

The film has been in development since 2012. On August 25, 2012, it was announced that 500 Days of Summer (2009) Director Marc Webb would direct the film (a little over a month after the release of Webb's previous movie The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)). After which, the film went through various actors and actresses joining then leaving, and different drafts of the script being written, and various of other problems. It was only until they finally cast the film, finished the full script (and the errors within the first draft), Marc Webb finishing The Amazing Spider-Man movies, and his next film Gifted (2017), that the film would finally start shooting. It's been five years since the films announcement, until it released in 2017. See more »

An unexpected and truly satisfying night at the movies.

Zounds! Thank heaven I didn't see another site's 31% rating before I went to a WGA screening of "The Only Living Boy In New York," because I might have given it a pass. I LOVED it! I'd give it a 99.9% rating (after all, nobody's perfect). What a joy. Allan Loeb's intelligent and serious script is liberally sprinkled with laugh-out-loud lines and Marc Webb's masterfully fluid direction is stunning. Like watching a French film… I almost expected subtitles. Webb made love to New York as if it was Paris. Flawless casting, Jeff Bridges is brilliant. Stellar performances all-round. Wonderful title sequence. And that fantastic sound track—thrilling! See for yourself.
