The Good Girl

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Justine's husband needs 'help' at the doctor's office, Justine is wearing a flannel shirt and overalls. Then, when she's back at work, she's suddenly wearing a multicolored sweater briefly for one scene (which is what she wears two days later during the day she talks to Holden's parents), then at the end of the day she's suddenly wearing the same flannel shirt and overalls. (00:57:45)

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the end of the movie, there is a scene in a kitchen where you can see the microphone on a boom above the actors, almost out of camera range, but not quite.

Visible crew/equipment: Several shots in the movie show an employee in a manager's booth giving announcements over the store loudspeaker. In virtually every different shot you can see the camera reflected in the glass of the manager's booth.

Continuity mistake: In one scene when Justine and her husband are in bed together, after the affair with the kid has already started, you see her back and her husband's face. Her hair is behind her ear without any loose threads over her ear, then when it switches, back of him to front of her, her hair is in front of her ear. It keeps going back and forth like this throughout the whole scene.

Bubba: If I were a woman, I'd be a slut. A lesbian slut.

Trivia: The nurse in the doctor's office when Phil goes in to test his sperm is also in the scene as an employee when the store sees on the TV that Holden has died.

Question: Is there any significance to Justine looking almost the same - wearing a jacket over jeans, with her hair tied back - for much of the movie?

Answer: I would say her similar clothing style represents that although she wanted her life to change, it never did, and she ultimately remained stuck in her never-ending routine, always looking the same, never moving forward in a new direction.
