Factual error: The movie is supposed to be set in Pittsburgh in the late 90's. A couple of scenes take place on a subway, but Pittsburgh didn't have an underground subway system at the time.

Suggested correction: Pittsburgh does have a subway that looks just like what's in the movie.

I live in Pittsburgh and at the time the movie took place around the late 90's and early 2000's we didn't have an underground subway. We only had a trolley called the "T" that went underground for a very short distance, but it mostly runs above ground and looks nothing like the subway in the movie. Whoever submitted the correction is probably referring to the North Shore Connector, but it didn't open til 2012. It too isn't a true subway either and only goes underground a very short distance.

Marion Petrocell: The Kingdom of God is inside you, and all around you, not in buildings of wood and stone. Split a piece of wood and I am there; lift a stone and you will find me.

Trivia: After Frankie tears up the apartment, possessed by the priest, she goes to the bed and levitates in a cruciform position. During this scene, there is a quick, sweeping shot of the wall and, if you watch it in slow motion, you can see a wall of boxes of Ritz crackers. This is either an obvious endorsement or some kind of inside joke.

Question: What is the meaning of the scene with the hooded blond woman throwing her child in the street? Frankie sees her, starts yelling, and the scene creates a mysterious mood, but I don't really see any connection to the plot.

Answer: Earlier in the movie Frankie thinks she's pregnant and is contemplating abortion. Hence the throwing the child away reference here.
