Revolutionary Road

Factual error: There is a modern drop ceiling in the 1955 hospital waiting room where Frank is waiting after April's miscarriage.

Factual error: The globe that April shows to the children is post-1992: Czechoslovakia is divided into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and Germany is united instead of being divided into Eastern and Western Germany.

Factual error: The longneck beer bottles in the 1955 beach scene are incorrect. Longnecks are faster to open, so they were designed for and used in bars. Retail beer bottles (that you would see at the beach) before 1980 or so were shorter so they could fit better in home fridge shelves.

Frank Wheeler: How do I know you didn't try to flush our entire fucking family down the toilet?

John Givings: Hopeless emptiness. Now you've said it. Plenty of people are onto the emptiness, but it takes real guts to see the hopelessness.
