The Human Stain

Factual error: At the beginning of the movie when Anthony Hopkins' character points out to the academic board the definition of "spooks" in the dictionary, it seems to be too close to the front of the dictionary to be in the S section. (00:07:10)

Continuity mistake: When Anthony Hopkins first gives Nicole Kidman a ride to her place, it is raining outside. When he gets out of the car to go inside, the entire windshield is dry and clean as a whistle, even the area that is outside the reach of the wiperblades.

Continuity mistake: In the flashback when the young Coleman Silk is having lunch with his mother and Steena Paulsson, the beans on his mother's fork disappear between shots and the fork itself changes position. (01:06:15)
