Continuity mistake: In the scene where Amanda has come downstairs after "never having that much to drink", her leggings are pink. Then it shoots to Graham, and back to Amanda, and her leggings are suddenly a dark brown. This definitely wasn't a trick of the light.


Continuity mistake: When Amanda drives into town, one shot shows her running her left hand through her hair and the next angle shows her right hand.
