    On November 19, 2012 Maren, with Cinematographer Nancy Schreiber shot the final scenes of the film in at Kos Koffe, a coffee shop in Park Slope, Brooklyn. In the scene, Bryan Greenberg's Nathan Fisher walks into the shop intending to work on his writing to win his girlfriend back. In an elaborate sight gag, reported in New York magazine and The New York Times, Maren brought 43 New York Area writers to fill every seat in the coffee shop. Nathan Fisher looks at them with the feeling that he doesn't belong in their company. The writers included Jennifer Egan, Michael Cunningham, Philip Gourevich, Kurt Andersen, Gary Shteyngart, Darin Strauss, and Nick Flynn.
