Recently, with the opening of the movie, the Daily News asked the three what they thought about shooting in New York City.

Both Horn and Daldry had something to say about Rockaway.

“I knew the city quite well, but making the film became another journey around the five boroughs,” Daldry said. “I didn’t know the Rockaways though, and since we’ve filmed there, I keep going back. I think the beaches and the people in the community are fantastic, it’s so welcoming.”

Horn said, “I thought the Rockaways were quirky and interesting. There’s a neighborhood for everyone, a neighborhood of every type and I really love that.”
