was shot September 13, 2011 at The College of New Rochelle.
Lakewood Brothers Production used CNR’s award winning Wellness Center on
the New Rochelle Campus to shoot a scene involving actor Ebon

This film, an adaptation of the best-selling novel by Marie Phillips,
stars, among others, Christopher Walken, John Turturro, Sharon Stone,
Alicia Silverstone, Edie Falco and Phylicia Rashad. Director and
co-founder of Lakewood Brothers Production, Marc Turtletaub, took time

company's movies include the Academy Award-winning Little Miss Sunshine. This film is his directorial debut.
The crew of Gods Behaving Badly also spent time with undergraduate communication students at the College to discuss movie and film production.
