The Virgin Suicides

Factual error: In the scene where the boys are driving to (or from) the dance, while driving down the street, you can clearly see a 1988-1991 Honda Civic hatchback in a driveway. Obviously this car was overlooked since this movie was set in the 1970's.

Factual error: A medical examiner or coroner (or other physician) typically determines cause of death, so unless Father Moody had a medical degree, his statement to Mr. And Mrs. Lisbon - he "listed Cecilia's death as an accident" - would not be official. It also isn't revealed exactly where Father Moody made such a listing.

Suggested correction: It wouldn't be necessary for the death certificate to list "accidental death", only for the priest to do so for church records so she could be buried in a holy cemetery.


Continuity mistake: The bottle of Peach Schnapps that Trip (Josh Hartnett) brings to the dance is alternately full and half empty during the scene. When Trip pulls it out, it is new and unopened. He hands it to Lux to drink, at which time it is nearly empty. He then drinks from it, and it is about half-full. He next hands it to the other couple, at which time the bottle is nearly full again.

Narrator: Given Lux's failure to make curfew everyone expected a crackdown, but few anticipated it would be so drastic. The girls were taken out of school, and Mrs. Lisbon shut the house in maximum-security isolation.
