My Life Without Me picture

Factual error: Sarah Polley is dying of cancer. She's not told anyone, and the film is about completing her list of things to do before she dies. There's a scene where she's talking about children with her neighbour, a nurse, the woman who she eventually 'sets up' to replace her, to look after her husband and children, when she's died. The nurse refers to a truamatic incident having nursed Siamese twins in hospital, who both die. She describes how one died before the other -the boy, then the girl. This is medically impossible, as Siamese twins are always the same gender.
