Goofs

The positioning of the yearbook class photos of young Jake and young Tim differs from shot to shot. When Julie first flips through the 1965 school yearbook in the library, Tim's photo can be seen in the middle of the second row on the left hand page, and Jake's in the fourth row left of the same page (Tim's picture can also been seen on another page that also displays Del's photo). Later, when Beth goes through the yearbook and flashes back to the night of the dance, Tim's photo is shown in the left hand side of the left row, Jake's on the right-hand page in the middle of the second row.

A very moving story
23 October 2000 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

Seen quite frequently on French TV, I enjoy watching this film. The plot is well done, the acting a pleasure to watch; especially for the girl's mother and the final dénouement not bad at all. The only thing I regret is the picture quality which is not up to scratch.
