Trivia Life Itself

During the writing of the film, Dan Fogelman listened to Bob Dylan's album Time Out of Mind and in particular the song Love Sick, which opens the film. Written after the divorce of the singer of his second wife, this double album, dating from 1997, speaks of love and mourning with melancholy. -Life Itself ... takes place on two different continents and in two distinct languages, English and Spanish. Dan Fogelman admits to being paralyzed by the challenge that this represented.
