Factual error: When Mother Superior announces those girls who wish to stay and join the convent, she states they will join the Novitiate. Actually, not correct. Their 1st step is called Aspirancy / Pre-Candidacy Then Postulancy / Candidacy THEN they are a Novice, for a few years, before taking Final Vows to be a Full Nun.


Question: In the beginning, the parents are on the phone and the wife is asking her husband to take their son to the airport. They live in separate houses in the same city yet it seems like they are still married. Are they divorced? Or are they married but live in separate houses?


Answer: They are estranged (possibly divorced) and living apart. As they have a son together, they would still maintain a relationship as co-parents. It should be noted that a cliched trope often seen in disaster movies (i.e. Twister, Independence Day, Outbreak, Jurassic Park 3, etc.) is to have a high-powered married couple who have either separated or divorced. They still love each other but have split due to professional conflicts. Usually some extreme crisis eventually brings them together, causing them to reaffirm their feelings for each other and they reunite.

Equals (2015)

Trivia: In the Big Brother nature of the movie, Silas and Nia would've been caught the 1st time they were alone in the restroom. I am sure that there are cameras in every single room as well as each person is fitted with a GPS tracker and their both staying late would have been noted.

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Question: What is the name of the melody that Mia Farrow sings (La La La Laaaa, La La La Lalala La Laaaaa) at the beginning of the movie, as the title/credits are being displayed?


Chosen answer: It doesn't have a specific title. It was a lullaby written for the film by Krzysztof Komeda. There's a few variations of the lullaby heard throughout the film, the opening credits version is listed as "Rosemary's Baby Main Theme - Vocal."
