Corrected entry: Clint Eastwood places his film stock in the refrigerator 39 minutes in. The film rolls come in shrink-wrapped cases - technology not used in the 50's.

Correction: The love affair is set in 1965, not the "50's"

Correction: She doesn't remove it twice. She takes it out and keeps it tucked in her palm while looking at Robert's book, then removes her glasses. When she goes to put her glasses back on, the envelope is still in her hand, tipping downward. She slightly shakes the glasses once to flip open one arm that is folded down so she can put them back on, although it looks like she's shaking something out of the envelope, but she is not. The cross is still in her hand the entire time.

Correction: Thermador invented the first self-cleaning oven in 1963 while the film is set in 1965.


Factual error: Not only is the tractor the wrong vintage, it is pulling a round baler that wasn't invented until the 1970's.

Francesca: And in that moment, everything I knew to be true about myself up until then was gone. I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before.
