The Ghost Writer

Trivia: McGregor finds that the BMW navigation system is active, and decides to follow the directions, having no idea where it will lead. There are obviously much easier and direct ways to check the entered target destination of a sat nav than actually following it. Instead of this being a mistake, it is most likely a script choice; portraying McGregor as stressed, technically unknowing, inexperienced driver of modern luxury cars, or all of that.

Trivia: When Ruth Lang and the ghostwriter are watching CNN's breaking news on television, the information bar at the bottom of the news screen identifies Lang as: "FMR Bristish PM". This must be an intentional typo that alludes to the commonly misspelled words on CNN.
