“That cast, not just the kids, the kids are fantastic, but the adults, too. What Kate [Walsh] and Dylan [McDermott] did is fantastic, Joan Cusack and Paul Rudd and Melanie Lynskey — they are unforgettable,” director and writer Stephen Chbosky shared.
He added, “It’s blessed. I’m telling you we had five weeks to cast this movie, five weeks, and our casting directors did a great job and our associate producer and myself we did a lot of homework. We watched everything that the agencies gave us, and that’s where Mae Whitman came from and other folks, like Johnny Simmons.”
