Mystic River

Factual error: In the scene at the beginning of the movie as the 3 youths walk up the street, you can see current MA license plates, although the action should have taken place many years earlier. (00:01:30 - 00:05:50)

Factual error: In the first scene the boys are playing street hockey using sticks that have plastic blades made with holes in them for better aerodynamics. These blades were not available in the mid-70's. We know this scene is taking place in the mid-70's because Dave tells his son he was in high school from 1978-82. The scene takes place when Dave is 11, too young to have been in high school.

Factual error: In the scene where young Dave Boyle is being driven away by the pedophiles, he looks out the rear window of their car and locks eyes with his friends standing in front of the street hockey goal, which is in the middle of the street. How did the car get past it?
