Corrected entry: George tells Ada that he can't read, yet later she burns a message into a piano key to be delivered to him.


Correction: He did not read the piano key, a young girl from the local school read it to him.

Corrected entry: Though not noblemen, it's clear that Sam Neill and Holly Hunter are at least upper middle-class people. In the mid 19th century a woman with a bastard child would not have been able to hold her good status, she would have been considered a whore and not suitable for a man such as Neill to marry.

Correction: The wilds of New Zealand is not exactly the same as the high society scene of London, which is why her father was able to find someone there who would marry her (Keitel). So it's not too surprising that there is a second person there willing to marry her.


Continuity mistake: When Stewart has a heated argument with a group of Maoris over some land deal, a guy with two feathers in his hair appears in front of him between shots. (01:06:10)

Flora: She says its her piano and she won't have him touch it. He's an oaf. He can't read. He's ignorant.
Stewart: He wants to improve himself. And you'll be able to play it. Teach him how to look after it. You can't go on like this. We're a family now. We all make sacrifices and so will you! You will teach him and I will see to it.
