Swimming Pool

Question: Could someone please explain the end to me? Why was Julie a different person at the end when she was in her father's office?

Linda Rauda

Chosen answer: Julie was not the publisher's daughter. Julia, who we see at the end, is the real daughter - given that Sarah doesn't seem very surprised to see Julia at the end (and the reaction of the secretary proves she's known to everyone), the most likely explanation is that the entire sequence in France is in fact the content of Sarah's book, and never really happened.

Continuity mistake: As Sarah Morton copies the text from Julie's diary, there is a picture of Julie's mother sitting on the crease of the diary between the two opened pages. In the next shot, the picture is sitting to one side of the diary, yet Sarah has never stopped typing out the diary entries and therefore could not have moved the picture.

Trivia: Near the end, the publisher tells Sarah Morton that he is disappointed in her latest book and asks her "Where's the plot twist?" Interestingly enough, the viewer is presented with a very big plot twist a short while later as the movie ends.
