Factual error: In Buffalo, Jon Savage drives his Polish girlfriend to the airport. However the problem is that they are driving at approximately 6:30am in broad daylight, in November. In November in Buffalo, the sun would not have even begun to rise at this time, let alone being fully up and out to brighten the day.
Character mistake: John would not be able to contact the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation to obtain his sister's application history. The confidentiality of applicants is strictly guarded and would not be shared.
