Corrected entry: When young Shakes asks Michael about Rizzo, he tells him that they "beat him until the was nothing left to beat." Years later Ceasar tells King Benny that his family was told Rizzo died of pneumonia. Wouldn't Rizzo's body have been returned to the family for the funeral? It would be hard to pass off a brutally beaten body for pneumonia. The Wilkinson Home would likely have been under investigation way back then.


Correction: They could have lied and said he was in a fight with another inmate. There are also ways to beat someone that doesn't leave marks.

Corrected entry: The character Shakes has the same last name as the writer of the book "Sleepers", last name being Carcaterra.

Correction: This is because the movie, being based on the book by Lorenzo Carcaterra, is about the author's own experience. Shakes Carcaterra is Lorenzo Carcaterra.

Shakes: This is a story about friendship which runs deeper than blood.



The last time Shakes serves as an altar boy for Father Bobby, he puts the white coat on top of the black gown, and it is all straight. Yet, when he turns to Father Bobby, the coat is lopsided and hangs over his left shoulder, and Father Bobby straightens it again. Even if the coat slides a little when Shakes leans towards the mirror right before turning to Father Bobby, it wouldn't pass his shoulder unless he did it on purpose.



Michael Sullivan is played by two people both named Brad. Young Michael is played by Brad Renfro, adult Michael by Brad Pitt.
