Diane Lane wanted Viggo Mortensen to be in the film so much that she gave up part of her salary so that the production could afford him.
The movie on the lawn at the Jewish summer camp was King Rat (1965).
When Grateful Dead were invited, their manager wanted the promoters to add another act he managed; he offered them two. They tossed a coin, chose Santana, and the rest is history. There is no Santana music in this movie, but perhaps they are subtly represented by the act the promoters did NOT choose, It's a Beautiful Day, with their hit "White Bird"
Much of the licensed music in the movie is by acts who performed at Woodstock, but two famous names associated with it actually were not there. Joni Mitchell felt she had to decline her invitation, but later composed a song ("Woodstock") about the festival. Big Brother and the Holding Company were never invited. Janis Joplin had left them the year before, and she performed there with the Kozmic Blues Band.
Dr. Fogler's Bungalows was based off of a real Catskills Bungalow colony called Dr. Locker's which existed for many years in the sleepy Sullivan County Hamlet of Mountaindale, NY. It was where the Films producer spent her childhood Summers.
Tovah Feldshuh was only 46 when the film was made, and in real life is not quite 15 years older than Liev Schreiber, who plays her son in the film.
