A few weeks ago, there was a flurry of discussion over the title of our film. Its current incarnation, which has been referred to, not inaccurately, as "difficult," "interesting" and "bound-to-be-changed," and which we've never been able to utter a single time without being asked to repeat it at least once, was deemed by higher parties as too idiomatic for foreign markets. This is true. In the interest of making a unified front prior to the film going public and the foreign rights marketed at Cannes, we attempted to come up with some new titles. They included:
Ruth Guthrie Shot Him Down
Knocked On Your Door At Dawn (With A Spark In My Heart)
Carry My Bones Back Home
We're sticking with the original for now.
