White Oleander

Continuity mistake: When Astrid and Claire visit Ingrid in prison, two kids are seen running towards them from behind. Before the camera angle changes from facing Astrid, both kids are still behind her. However, when it shows the backside of Claire and Ingrid in the next shot, the two kids have already passed all three of them. (01:06:25)

Continuity mistake: Throughout the movie Astrid's eyebrows change colour from a light brown to a dark brown.

Continuity mistake: When Astrid is talking to Paul, after the prison visit to tell Ingrid she won't be back, her eyebrows are suddenly brown. Allison Lohman had begun to film another movie about a teen with cancer. For this reason, her brow color was darkened.

Factual error: When Michelle Pfeiffer is typing in commands into Barry's computer to delete all his files, the commands she types in wouldn't do anything but return an error message. It's clear the computer input was tamed down to make it easy to understand for anyone who has never even been near a computer. (00:24:00)

Trivia: In the book, Astrid felt a lot of guilt about Ingrid's work at the magazine, feeling she was the reason her mother couldn't "be free." After hearing the Annie story, it is obvious who put that idea in her head. (So, we are shown a quick scene of them while Ingrid works.) Astrid also felt guilty when she outgrew her shoes, always waiting until they fell apart, then choosing the cheapest pair she found.Thus, the shot of her at school starting with a look at her blue flip flops and panning up to her face.
