5 mistakes

Factual error: In the scene in Josey's kitchen, 3/4 of the way through the film, there is a bottle of TUMs Ultra on the kitchen table. There were TUMs but no TUMs Ultra at the time.

Factual error: When Charlize Theron is driving to meet with her boss and the lawyers, she is surrounded by late model vehicles, specific to the era. But when she passes a side street, you can see a relatively new model police cruiser and other current vehicles.

Add time

Factual error: North Country is set in 1989, yet in one scene, Anita Hill is testifying on television. The Clarence Thomas confirmation hearing did not occur until 1991 (which is when Anita Hill testified).

Add time

Factual error: Close to the beginning of the film, Josey is seen filling her truck with gas. The stations sign is seen behind her in the distance with a price of $1.71 per gallon visible. In winter, 1989, US gas prices were in the range of $.90-$1 per gallon. According to the US department of Energy, Minnesota fuel prices did not reach that level until a brief period in April 2001, and then not again until April 2004.

Add time

Factual error: The movie is set in Minnesota in 1989, but in the scene where Josey goes to her mother's house, the yard is decorated with lighted wire reindeer, the type that have only been available since 2000.
