White Oleander

Astrid tries to make a deal with her mom.. that if she (mom) tells the truth why she killed her boyfriend, then Astrid will lie for her in court. Astrid's mom talks about how when Astrid was very young, she left her for about a year at some woman's house and that Astrid's dad is an artist and he came back asking for Astrid when she was 8 years old. At the trial, Astrid isn't asked to testify and Astrid's mom goes to prison, meaning that she now lets Astrid live her life. Astrid moves to New York with Paul Trout and two years later, in a magazine, she reads an interview about her mom.


Continuity mistake: When Astrid and Claire visit Ingrid in prison, two kids are seen running towards them from behind. Before the camera angle changes from facing Astrid, both kids are still behind her. However, when it shows the backside of Claire and Ingrid in the next shot, the two kids have already passed all three of them. (01:06:25)
