The Painted Veil

Walter (Edward Norton) dies of cholera. A few years later, Kitty (Naomi Watts) is in London and her son Walter is 5 years old. They both run into Charlie and Kitty introduces her son to him. Charlie asks for a get together some time and Kitty turns him down.


Continuity mistake: As Edward Norton rises and walks away, the child that is in Naomi Watts' arms is lying on his side. The angle then changes and instantly the child is lying face up. The moment is continuous as Norton is still there, moving away. (01:47:20)
