White Oleander

Corrected entry: In the scene where Astrid meets her caseworker for the first time, there is a shot showing her sitting on the floor by her bed with her bare legs tucked in close. However, when the doorbell rings, she jumps up immediately and runs to answer it, now wearing jeans.

Correction: In actuality, Astrid is wearing jean shorts in the first place. You don't see them when she sits, you only see her knees, because they're shorts.

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.
