For Incredible Places has finally arrived on Netflix, and is thrilling audiences with its dramatic narrative that promises many tears.
In a recent interview with Collider, Elle Fanning and Justice Smith opened the game about the controversial and sad final scene of the film. So, if you haven’t watched the movie yet, spoiler alert!
When asked about his personal reactions when reading the end of the script / book, Smith points out that he liked the ambiguity about the intention of Finch’s death very much, and how important Fanning thinks it is not shown in the film.
Justice Smith agrees: “One important thing for me, when I joined the movie, was that Finch was not martyred. I didn’t want the kids to see themselves in Finch and think that if they died, people would finally see how special they were. That was not the lesson I was trying to show with the character. Finch’s death was the result of him not reaching out and getting the help he needed to deal with his mania and his depression. The effect it has on other characters is that they see how important it is that they haven’t realized. “
At another point in the interview, Elle Fanning talks about the importance of the film for young people: “Dealing with sadness and pain is not really discussed enough. Violet’s trajectory in her grieving process is something we really wanted it was sincere. It’s her process, and everyone’s process is different, but it’s life. Plus, it’s Jennifer Niven’s story. That’s not fiction. It really happened to her when she was young. a boyfriend with whom it happened. So we wanted to make sure it was treated with care. We also think about the fans of the book. There is a real community now. I think it’s beautiful to create a community and a conversation. “
