Goofs

Although the story unfolds in chronological order, a People magazine article dated November 1978 is used midway through the movie to demonstrate the national publicity the fledgling bank strike was generating, even though the strike (which went on for more than two years) was resolved in early 1979 -- just a few months after the magazine first reported that the women were picketing.
