The film comes from the director James Gray ( The lost city of Z, Ad Astra), and is a partially autobiographical story.

Graff’s parents later sent him to Kew Forest, a private school then a haven for bigots, where students regularly used the N-word and Fred Trump, father of former President Donald Trump, served on the school’s board of trustees.
