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 »

I want what daddy's got!
29 August 2017 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"The Only Living Boy in New York" is one of those movies that's full of themes of love and dreams, wanting something more, still it proves that life, love and many other things with people and family are complex. This drama shows how life can change for many and that life and art often imitate one another in a literal form life is always an open book! Set in New York city Thomas Webb(Callum Turner)is a newly college grad who doesn't know the way yet as his only life is chatting with his alcoholic next door old wise neighbor W.F. Gerald(Jeff Bridges) who's a brain on life, love, and advice as he's the one writing the book! Then things become more crazy and complex when Thomas finds that his rich father Ethan(Pierce Brosnan) is having an affair with a much younger sexy attractive socialite lady named Johanna(the sexy Kate Beckinsale). Now enter Thomas to steal away daddy's little cat, as this film takes more of a spin about life, love, and learning the ways and the world of people. Overall this film is nothing great yet it's a watch as it's an okay drama as to how life is an open complex book on connection and love relationships.
