Dead Man Walking

Continuity mistake: When Sister Helen is being pulled over for speeding, in the view through the rear view mirror, the cop car behind her is driving on the left side of the road, with the police officer driving in the right front seat, on a straight road with a solid center line. In the next shot, both cars are on the right side of the road, with the police officer sitting in the left front seat, on a curvy road with a dashed center line.

Mistakes

Trivia

The movie is loosely based on Sister Prejean's experiences with two real death row inmates, Robert Lee Willie and Elmo Patrick Sonnier. Both men were electrocuted. In the movie, however, Sean Penn's fictional character was killed by lethal injection--because the image of a man strapped down to be injected allows for all that Christ symbolism.
