Children of a Lesser God

Plot hole: Sarah breaks a mirror in frustration by throwing something against it. Then she buries her face in her arms and sobs. It remains a mystery how she managed to cut her hand so bad that it needed to be fixed with five stitches, as she isn't even seen picking up the pieces. (00:59:15)


Continuity mistake: In the first class, when James introduces himself, Johnny (the unapproachable boy) is writing slowly in a large notebook. When we see him first there are only a few lines, but a moment later the page is already half full. James tells him to stop, and when Johnny opens the book again the page is almost full. (00:07:20)


Continuity mistake: When the ferry with James lands the windshield wipers on his truck are positioned at an equal level. When we see the car going up the driveway to the school, one wiper is higher than the other, and when he arrives at the school they are at the same level again. (It goes without saying that it isn't raining and they aren't used.) (00:03:55)
