In November 2020, Haley Lu Richardson joined the cast of the film, directed by Vanessa Caswill from a screenplay by Katie Lovejoy, based on the 2011 novel The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith, with Richardson also to serve as executive producer. During the first week of principal photography in January 2021, Ben Hardy, Dexter Fletcher, Rob Delaney, Sally Phillips, and Jameela Jamil joined the cast.
Based on a true story documented by physician Oliver Sacks (“Awakenings”), much of “At First Sight” is the creakily familiar love story about mismatched paramours. Tense New York architect Amy (Mira Sorvino) meets mellow upstate masseur Virgil (Val Kilmer) and the two opposites – gasp! – attract. The sticking point here is not that Virgil comes from the wrong side of the railroad tracks – it’s that he literally can’t see the railroad tracks.
On their flight from New York to London, Hadley and Oliver fall in love with each other. However, they lose each other at customs and the possibility of ever meeting each other again seems improbable, but destiny may have a way of changing the odds.
Most refreshingly, although the story follows several well-worn ruts down lover’s lane, screenwriter Steve Levitt resists shoehorning the bittersweet, fact-based drama into a Hollywood happy ending – at least not until on-screen titles rush in to reassure us that yes, children, even in life sometimes fairy tales do come true.
Is Love at First Sight based on a true story?
