Stigmata

Stigmata (1999)

Continuity mistake: When Frankie is about to receive the first stigmata (when sitting in the bath), a pigeon suddenly flies up. When she takes a piece of a feather that flew into the water, you can already see stigmata marks on her right-hand wrists.

Visible crew/equipment: When Frankie (Patricia Arquette) returns to work after receiving the hand wounds, something catches her attention and she goes to the window to look at a mysterious woman. At one point, a group of doves burst from the ground to the right of the woman (from Frankie's view). if you look directly where the dove's come from, you can see the travelling cage they are released from. if you look a little more to the side, you can see a stage hand laying on the ground, shaking the cage so the doves will come out.

Visible crew/equipment: After Patricia Arquette has another attack in a nightclub, she runs down an alleyway, pursued by Gabriel Byrne. As she stands cornered, you can see the boom mike overhead in several shots.

Trivia: After Frankie tears up the apartment, possessed by the priest, she goes to the bed and levitates in a cruciform position. During this scene, there is a quick, sweeping shot of the wall and, if you watch it in slow motion, you can see a wall of boxes of Ritz crackers. This is either an obvious endorsement or some kind of inside joke.

Marion Petrocell: The Kingdom of God is inside you, and all around you, not in buildings of wood and stone. Split a piece of wood and I am there; lift a stone and you will find me.

Question: What is the meaning of the scene with the hooded blond woman throwing her child in the street? Frankie sees her, starts yelling, and the scene creates a mysterious mood, but I don't really see any connection to the plot.

Chosen answer: Earlier in the movie Frankie thinks she's pregnant and is contemplating abortion. Hence the throwing the child away reference here.
