Suggested correction: The bruise is still on his left side. The viewer is looking at Elton's face in the mirror, so the viewer's left is also Elton's left.


Continuity mistake: When Elton and Bernie sit in the cafe for the first time, the cup is on the right side of the table. In the next cut, it's on the left, and finally in the last cut, returns to the right side of the table.
