“We have this epic scene where we chase each other. Well, I run away from her, and she’s chasing after me, and it gets into quite a bit of a tussle, doing the scene, we had to pause because it was getting quite aggressive. Instead of us, like, maybe not fighting as hard, she [Shannon] was like, ‘Let’s put some pads on.'”

In the show, Florence Pugh revealed that while they were quite chill on set, she had quite fun acting alongside Molly Shannon. While the movie was very well scripted, it was slow-paced and meaningful. So for both female roles, where Florence Pugh and Molly Shannon play the role of daughter and mother respectively had to improvise on their own for their roles, which later on turned from running after each other to getting aggressive on the other. Though this part was done solely due to the improvement of their characters and the betterment of the movie.

A Good Person Was Run on Limited Screens

A Good Person starring Florence Pugh, Morgan Freeman, and Molly Shannon as its leads was released on a limited number of screens, 530 to be exact and director Zach Braff did an excellent job this time around bringing the script to fruition. Though the movie was available in very limited locations it had a very high rating and was also critically acclaimed as one of the best. Although the budget for the movie has not been made public, A Good Person rolled at the box office for a bit over $1.3 million after its release worldwide with over $1.2 million claimed domestically.
