"She is that rare thing: a wonderful actress, a wonderful soul possessed of that skinlessness that
the camera is greedy for, which allows us to glimpse all of her frailties, her sorrows, her joys,
her good heart. She manages all of those things with grace, style and an astonishing work ethic."
- Anthony Minghella on Nicole Kidman

 In the DVD/Video version, when Nicole gives her monologue about yearning for the Naval Officer,
she mouths the words "We made love." But the words "You and I made love," are heard. This was
done to clear up the confusion about whom she actually made love to.
 Continuity error - When Alice is lying in bed telling Bill her dream, we first see the blanket is moved
down exposing her hip, haunch, and thigh. Immediately afterwards, the blanket is covering her up to her waist.
 The tremendous hype around the release of this film resulted in several rumors about the plot.
The most widely circulated was the mistaken rumor that in the film, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman
played married psychiatrists having affairs with their patients.
 Opened at #1 at the US Box Office.
 Nicole won the Favorite Actress - Drama/Romance award at the 2000 Blockbuster Awards for her role as Alice.
 Continuity error - When they are smoking pot and have the arguement, when 'Tom' says "a couple of models"
he's got his hand on Nicole's hip and the next moment it's down on the bed.
