"Ensemble is always important to me as a director, so being an actor in the film influenced the casting of the film in that I basically cast people who make me laugh and are good people. As a film that stems from the personal - good, funny, and talented people were essential to get us through the inevitable challenges of making a film." - AnnaRose King
