“Infusing a well-running thriller with deeper philosophical questions is always a challenge, but the pursuit of that alchemy has been most inspiring and rewarding. And we had the right team to do it — between our cast and our crew, and the small town in Newfoundland where we filmed — it was a very special experience,” Sparkes said in a statement.
