She divulges the meaning of the film’s title – it is a wrestling term that was meant to be a metaphor for the main character who is caught in an uncomfortable position and having difficulty getting himself free. Fleck points out that in the classroom scenes they used a lot of actual school kids and that Gosling enjoyed this because it kept things fresh take after take because he had to perform for them like real teacher. They talk about how they got Toronto indie rock band Broken Social Scene to do the score and touch upon many other aspects of the film, including casting and the camerawork. This is a low key but thoroughly enjoyable track.
