Continuity mistake: When Marley is walking to meet Rourke at the cafe, look behind her as she turns the corner and comes to a stop. You will see a woman inside the cafe behind her take a sip from her coffee. The scene then cuts to a close-up of Marley and we see the woman inside the cafe take that same sip of coffee again. There was not enough time for her to drop her hand and bring it back up again to take another sip.
