Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, the priest hands Evita a goblet of wine. Before she can drink, she faints. the goblet drops to the floor but it is empty. (01:45:50)

Suggested correction: I'm sorry but the goblet is not empty. When she drops it on the floor you can see a small splash of a dark coloured liquid on the marble floor of the church. People may assume that there should be more visible liquid from the goblet but if Evita was the only one taking of the wine, then there would be only a small amount inside the goblet.
