- At its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, THE DREAMERS' subject matter and frankness caused quite a stir. Many believed the film would be censored for American distribution. Instead the studio agreed to release the film with an MPAA rating of NC-17.
- Although based on a novel by Gilbert Adair, THE DREAMERS is said to closely emulate Bernardo Bertolucci's experiences in Paris during the 1960s. He has said that it is the period during which he discovered sex, politics and cinema.
- Novelist Gilbert Adair also penned the similarly themed LOVE AND DEATH ON LONG ISLAND and THE HOLY INNOCENTS.
