The Women

Continuity mistake: Sylvie just managed to dodge Mary's questions about the fact that she's obviously hiding something. The convo shifts on the topic of Meg's father and the possible passing of the torch; Annette Bening's right hand constantly moves between holding one arm of the shades or the glass in the reverse shots.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Annette Bening does a Robocop-like scan of the store. She then pulls up her sunglasses. Just before the cut, she pulls her hand back, but in the next shot the glasses are further back in her hair. From there she walks in and a clerk offers her a "facelift in a jar." Watch on the left part of the lane, two women (black short hair, mid-length grey hair) walk in the opposite direction and are already past the clerk. In the next shot, they walk again past the clerk only after a couple seconds and in a different pattern. (00:03:20)

Catherine Frazier: It feels like someone kicked you in the stomach, feels like your heart stopped beating, feels like that dream, you know the one, when you are falling and you want so desperately to wake up before you hit the ground but it's all out of your control, you can't trust anything anymore, no-one is who they say they are, your life is changed forever, and the only thing to come out of the whole ugly experience is no-one will be able to break your heart like that again.
