The movie had a mix of British and international talent. Johanna was played by Noley Thornton. Fellow American Luke Edwards also starred. British Legends like Paul Scofield, Rosemary Harris and Malcolm McDowell were the adult leads. Derek de Lint, Renée Soutendijk, Hidde Maas and Wim Serlie also starred from the Netherlands along with other Brits such as Benedick Blythe, Christopher Villiers and Martin Delaney in smaller roles. Some of the scenes were filmed in the village of De Rijp (the Netherlands) in the summer of 1995.
