Alyssa rips into Holden outside the Hockey Rink

We shot this scene in Brick, NJ over the course of four hours. Joey did multiple wide takes, nailing the fever pitched performance on the sixth (after she collapsed against the car and I called cut, the crew applauded). It was mighty painful for both her and Ben, due to the emotionally exhausting nature of the scene. And after we got a perfect master shot, we did it again, two more times, in closeups. By the end of the night, both voices were fried. Joey points to this scene as the most satisfying example of working with her boyfriend, in as much as when the take was over and she was an emotional wreck, I was able to hold her through the resonant tears. Isn't that sweet? (41K JPG)
