Where The Heart Is

Question: When Willy Jack picks up the girl on the side of the road (after leaving Novalee at Wal-Mart), why doesn't he want her to put the last of her bags in the backseat?

Answer: I think he motions for her to put them in the backseat simply because nothing else will fit in the trunk. I'm sure that it's safe to assume that he and Novalee had placed all their belongings in there already, so there wasn't much room left.

Answer: There were stolen items in the trunk. The officer rattled off a list of items "same exact items stolen" from a store. He probably didn't want her to find it.

Question: What exactly was wrong with Forney's sister? I know he said she started drinking when he was younger but why did she have to be taken care of all the time?

Answer: She has been drinking since she was younger, and died from alchohol related disease.

Question: Why was the poster of Queen Amidala (shown as Novalee runs out of Wal-Mart) supposed to be taken out of the movie?

Answer: Because Natalie Portman played Queen Amidala, and it would have detracted from the reality of "Where the Heart Is" to see the leading lady in costume for another of her films.

Question: I read on movietome.com that Uma Thurman played a girl named Daphne in this movie. I have watched over and over and read the end credits and can't find her anywhere. Is she in this movie?

Answer: Wrong movie. She is in Where The Heart Is (1990), not Where The Heart Is (2000).

Continuity mistake: In the scenes at the beginning where Willy Jack is in the car his shirt changes 3 times before he's finally pulled over with the 14 year old girl. It's all one day. (00:14:00)
