Rabbit-Proof Fence

Factual error: In the evening check at the dormitory, when the girls are found missing, the nun calls Daisy Kalibil. In real life the 8-year-old Daisy was promised to a man named Kalibil whom she married later, but at that time she was still Daisy Craig. (00:31:20)


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Molly and Daisy meet their mother again they run towards each other through a light forest. Then there is a cut against the evening sky where they fall into each others' arms, and it's an open area with no trees nor bushes. (01:18:55)


Continuity mistake: When the girls sit down for their first breakfast at Moore River a mug appears next to Molly's plate when the camera aims across the table. (00:18:10)

A.O. Neville: If only they would understand what we are trying to do for them.

Moodoo: This girl is clever. She wants to go home.

Question: At the beginning the tracker is quite determined to catch the girls. Later it seems that he deliberately misses their tracks (out of admiration for their cleverness and courage?), but then again he is seen all by himself trying to follow them. Is there any evidence from the book that he wanted them to make it home?


Chosen answer: The Tracker didn't actually want to catch the girls, he only had the job so he could stay close to his daughter in Moore River. He has a lot of admiration for Molly's cleverness, how she covers the tracks and so deliberatly misses the tracks to give the girls a chance.
