Corrected entry: In one scene where Suzie is falling (after the house charm is removed), her bracelet falls slowly - but the house charm is still attached.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Suzie's dad is sitting with his face next to a candle, staring out the window into the dark of the night, his and the candles' reflections are shown in the glass. The movement of the fire on the candle is not the same as the movement of its reflection.
Corrected entry: When Abigail, Susie's mother, returns from her long absence, her hair is short. After this, there is a shot of her when the father leaves for work, and she has long hair. Then when she's making Suzie's bed, her hair is short again.
Corrected entry: Harvey and the man at the sink hole had great difficulty rolling the safe. How did Harvey move it from the basement to his vehicle in seconds, since Suzie's sister had just escaped with the incriminating book? Why move the safe at all at that point? Why did Harvey not back his vehicle up to the sink hole?trango
Corrected entry: At the time of Susie's murder her mother's making dinner and the other kids are watching 'The Partridge Family' on TV. We are assuming this is around 6 PM. We already know the date is December 6, 1973. 'The Partridge Family' actually aired at 8:30 PM EST. It also aired on Fridays - December 6, 1973 was on a Thursday. And when it cut to an exterior shot of the murder scene it was still light out. It would certainly have been pitch black by 5 PM in early December.
Corrected entry: On the cars in this movie there was inspection stickers on the windshield even though those weren't required until 1979 which doesn't follow the time line in this movie.
Corrected entry: When Susie first enters her house after being killed, she leaves muddy footprints on the floor. When the shot changes to a front view from the kitchen, the footprints are gone. This scene doesn't change viewpoints from the Spirit World until after these shots are complete.VonZipper08
Corrected entry: When Suzie's sister is frantically leaving the house with the evidence she found in the murderer's house, she's sweaty and the ground is as green as could be. After her mother finally returns home, she shows the evidence to her grandmother. The next shot is of the murderer's house with snow covering the ground and police cars surrounding the house.
Corrected entry: When Susie's sister first enters the killer's basement from the window and goes upstairs, we can see her passing within a couple feet of her sister's concealed body in the safe; the director makes sure that we do. When she flees the house so does the killer with great haste knowing that he has been caught. The problem lies in the next scene when we see the killer dropping off the safe at the sink hole to dispose of the evidence; which takes 2 people and great effort to roll it to the edge. How did he manage to get it out of the basement and loaded into his truck in 10 minutes by himself?VonZipper08
Susie Salmon: My name is Salmon, like the fish. First name, Susie. I was fourteen years old when I was murdered on December 6th,1973. I wasn't gone. I was alive in my own perfect world. But in my heart, I knew it wasn't perfect. My murderer still haunted me. My father had the pieces but he couldn't make them fit. I waited for justice but justice did not come.
