ignore that elephant in the room

Didn't know Kim Katrall was English. She got one of her big breaks in Porkie's; sweater girl remember? Respect. Great older interview in The Independent with Ewan McGregor (about parenting, laying off the bottle and loving radio) that I fall back on myself sometimes. Dwell-tastic beach house, and Ewan kitted out in ?? Anyone? Paul Smith? Anyhow looking quite sharp. Plus this film has Olivia Williams and Eli Wallach. Class. But then there is that elephant problem...
The film began production in February 2009 in Germany, at the Babelsberg Studios in Potsdam. Germany stood in for London and Martha's Vineyard due to Polanski's inability to legally travel to those places. The majority of exteriors, set on Martha's Vineyard, were shot on the island of Sylt in the North Sea, and on the ferry "MF SyltExpress". The exterior set of the house where much of the film takes place, however, was built on the island of Usedom, in the Baltic Sea. Exteriors set at a publishing house in London were shot in downtown Berlin, while Strausberg Airport near Berlin stood in for the Martha's Vineyard airport. -via Wiki.
