"She's terrific," writer and director Dennis Lee said. "It was an amazing experience to have her as my boss. You couldn't ask for a better boss." Lee also explained the film's title and premise, which is centered upon a boy's journey to find his father.

Michael Sheen, who plays the father in the film, also had kind words about Roberts as producer of the film. "She came on the set and she was just great," he said. "She always brought sunshine with her...She was lovely to have around."
