Little Children

Continuity mistake: In the scene where May McGorvey is writing the letter to Ronnie in the hospital, the two "n's" are very close together, almost looking like the letter "m." This is shown again when Ronnie discovers it in her belongings when returning from the hospital. However, when he looks at the letter on the table after doing the dishes, it is two distinct "n's."

Factual error: The movie apparently takes place in a Boston suburb, judging from the Massachusetts license plates, but, in the scene in the train station, the words "Long Island Railroad" are on a sign.

Continuity mistake: When Ronnie smashes his mother's clocks and collectibles, the wide shot shows all the shelves to our right are cleared of all debris. But the next close-up shows two large pieces of a smashed figurine are still on one of those shelves. (01:57:10)

Ronald James McGorvey: She's gone.
Sarah Pierce: Who... who's gone?
Ronald James McGorvey: Mommy's gone. Mommy died.

Narrator: Sexual tension is an elusive thing, but Kathy had pretty good radar for it. It was like someone had turned a knob to the right, and the radio station clicked in so loud and clear it almost knocked her over. Once she became aware of the connection between them, it seemed impossible that she'd missed it before.

Brad Adamson: You have a nice place here.
Sarah Pierce: You think? Yeah, Richard does pretty well for himself.
Brad Adamson: Oh, yeah? What's he do?
Sarah Pierce: He lies.

More quotes from Little Children


Question: In the foursome dinner scene, Cathy checks under the table and sees something about Sarah's feet that heightens her suspicion about the affair. What does Cathy see? The camera seems to focus on Sarah's painted toenails, but I don't understand why that would arouse suspicion.

Chosen answer: In the book it explains that the color is one that only a young teen would like, and a mature woman would never wear, unless she were too in love to notice that it was gaudy.
