Far and Away

Factual error: When Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise arrive in America, the year is 1892, but the flags being passed out at the pier have 50 stars on them. In 1892, there were 44 states.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. McGuire is shot, he falls down, and Shannon's spoons spill out all over the ground. In an overhead shot, all the spoons are snatched up by bystanders, but then it cuts to a ground-level shot, and they're back on the ground, getting snatched up again.
