The classical score is by Rachel Portman in her film debut at the age of 22, and the film also uses dance tracks by Oxford student band "Kudos Points" whose members included Charlie Mole (who went on to compose film scores in his own right).

The screenplay includes a play within a play as several of the characters are vying for a role in a student production of The Duchess of Malfi.
