Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist is a comedy about two people thrust together for one hilarious, sleepless night of adventure in a world of mix tapes, late-night living, and, live, loud music. Nick frequents New York’s indie rock scene nursing a broken heart and a vague ability to play the bass. Norah is questioning pretty much all of her assumptions about the world. Though they have nothing in common except for their taste in music, their chance encounter leads to an all-night quest to find a legendary band’s secret show and ends up becoming the first date in a romance that could change both their lives.
About Kat’s Character
Norah Silverberg is the teenage daughter of a wealthy record producer who shares Nick’s passion for music. Dennings was the second actor to be cast (Cera having been first). Sollett saying that “her being liberated from [people’s expectations] liberated the film in many ways, and certainly her character from cliché.” Dennings felt that she related to Norah more than any other she had played before and “wanted to make sure she was really fleshed out”. Her favorite day of shooting was with a group of drag queens at a gay cabaret, but she said that filming Norah’s first orgasm was “really uncomfortable… Really, really.”

» The film originally opened at The Jerkoffs show where Norah first meets Nick. All prior scenes (including Nick leaving a voicemail on Tris’ phone, the scenes with Norah, Caroline, and Tris at the Catholic school, etc.) were re-shoots filmed six months after principal production was wrapped.
» The trailer shows an alternate version of the club scene kiss with Nick and Norah. When Tris comes up to ask them how they met – it is Nick who tells Tris that they have the same dentist. In the actual movie, Norah is the one that tells this to Tris.
» Norah is a Jewish girl attending a Catholic high school. This is explained in the book that Norah wants to attend any school Caroline does, but due to Caroline’s obnoxious behavior, she’s kicked out of every school she’s been to and is only accepted at a Catholic school.
