Corrected entry: In the scene where Allie is a nurse taking care of the wounded, the narrator says something like, "To Allie all the wounded men were just Noah to her or someone who had fought alongside him." How would Allie know that Noah was in the war when obviously she hasn't gotten any of his letters or had any contact with him since that one tragic night?
Corrected entry: After Ally follows the white arrows and discovers the painting supplies, we soon see her painting half nude on the upper deck. The painting she is working on looks like a project that has been in progress for a LOT longer than the hour or two Noah was gone for breakfast. It looks almost done.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Noah enters Allie's room at the nursing home, you see the doorknob on the middle of the door like how it is on regular doors. But in rooms with memory care patients, such as Allie, doorknobs are usually high on the door or there is no doorknob on the inside so the patients cannot leave on their own.
Corrected entry: When they are at the beach the scene is a rocky beach. The film is set in North Carolina. We don't have a rocky coast in North Carolina.
Corrected entry: When Allie has come back to see Noah after all their years apart and they have just eaten he walks her to her car. As she gets in and shuts the door you can just see the top of Noah's hand pushing the door closed and in the next shot he is far away from the car with his hands at his sides.
Corrected entry: (SPOILER)When the new doctor is examining Duke he refers to Allie as "Miss Hamilton", which is never explained (in the credits she is Allie Calhoun). This might be fine if he were addressing her directly (since she seems unaware of her family), but since he's talking in private to her husband, it comes across as incredibly rude. It seems a deliberate act, since who she married is a 'secret' until the end of the film.
Corrected entry: It is revealed toward the beginning of the film that Allie was 17 years old on June 5th, 1940. Now, Allie and Noah separate for seven years; this would mean that Allie is now 24 years old. When Allie's mother comes to find Allie after she has her affair with Noah and shows her daughter the man she used to love at the mine, she says that they were together 25 years prior. This could lead viewers to believe that the anonymous man is Allie's actual father and that Allie's mother was a teenager when she had her.
