Often as an editor you might drop a line of dialogue, or move a scene around. But that was the only drama where I don't think I took out any lines, or thinned it out.
– Veteran editor Owen Ferrier-Kerr, on editing Two Cars, One Night
There are a few moments in childhood that have a lasting impact. Not because they change the course of your life, or because they arrive with any great fanfare, in fact quite the opposite. Those are moments where an unexpected joy is found in the everyday, a moment of beauty in the ordinary. Two Cars, One Night captures one of those brief moments.
– Writer/director Taika Waititi, in the press kit for Two Cars, One Night
