After hearing actress Emma Watson's speech for the HeforShe campaign and reviewing the 2014 historical film The Imitation Game, writer and producer Drew Gars (who supports Watson's campaign) was partially inspired to create a film about human rights. Emma Watson was in talks with Gars to be cast as the lead role, then later on, she was comfirmed for the role. Jennifer Lawrence also joined the cast to play the role of Millie's roommate and love interest, Sam Forester. Gwyneth Paltrow joined the cast, playing Emily Kendrew, the film's main antagonist.
In March, Ferris Bueller star, Matthew Broderick, who starred with Watson on the film, The Tale of Desperaux, joined the film as Jonathan Kendrew, Emily's husband. That same month, Bailee Madison, who is known for Jennifer Aniston's daughter in Just Go With It, joined the film as Janine.
In May, Bill Murray signed on to play Benjamin, Sam's father. In late May, Sally Field joined in to play Sarah Forester, Benjamin's wife and Sam's mother. In June, Ben Barnes joined the film as Sam's boyfriend.
Principal photography took 50 days, beginning on early September in Washington, D.C. and ending on late October in the University of Cambridge.
Millie comes out
Professor: We here at The University of Oxford recognize great excellence and hard work, and because of that, without further a do, let's welcome one of our students, valedictorian Millie Chamberlain (the crowd applauds)
(Millie smiles and she walks up the stage towards the podium. Cut to Millie's parents applauding. Diane starts recording from her phone)
Millie: Thank you. As a former student at Oxford, it's been a great honor being able to attend this university. I was able to learn and grow, thanks to help of my professors and peers and I was able to pull through these past four semesters academically. I've had some struggles along the way, (Millie hesitates and looks down at her speech. She decides to go off-script) but there's also something about me that all of you should know-... (Millie takes a deep breath and slowly lets it out)... it's that I'm gay.
(The crowd gasps and murmurs. Garrett, Diane, and Shelley are shocked)
Millie's fight with her parents
Diane: Are you out of your fucking mind!?
Millie: Mum, I-
Diane: Don't say a word! (paces around the room with her hand on her forehead) I don't know how to process this.
Garrett: Do you realize the grief you're causing me and your mother now? You announced this to a whole bloody crowd for God's sake!
Millie: Oh, so my sexuality embarrasses you?
Garrett: I didn't say that!
Millie: It clearly does.
Garrett: If we were embarrassed, we would've said something!
Millie: If you and Mum weren't embarrass, you wouldn't have reacted the way you did! (leaves the living room)
Diane: This conversation isn't finished!
Millie: Well, I finished it! There you fucking go! ( storms in to her room)
