Trivia

The novel was adapted by Australian screenwriter Lisa Hoppe, whose credits include the award-winning short “Heck.”

The film was made and first released about six years after its source novel 'My Life Is an Alphabet' by author Barry Jonsber was published in 2013. The movie is the novelist's first book to be turned into a film.
