'So I began to shoot tests with different film stocks and found a low-contrast Kodak stock, 5277, that I had never used before. It was softer, muted, and had noticeable grain to it. I thought it would help create a forlorn nostalgia in the mood of the story. I discovered the stock was being discontinued and had to find all that was left of it in Canada and the US to be able to use it. The film's pastel quality and the way it rendered colors also helped to create the images of fantasy and desire of the adolescents, like the melancholy longing of the novel.' 19,123 notes
