Goofs

The so-called '49 Pontiac' does not appear to be entirely a 1949 as described. If you look at the car carefully, you will notice it has a 1950 grille, the hood and trunk - 1951. The side molding trim on the front fender - seeming like half a feather or arrow is 1951, the stone-shield on the back fenders either 1949 or 1950 ('51s and '52s triangular) - it was that for both years. Pontiac had that basic model from 1949 through 1952, with varying grille, trim differences. See more »

Not for Soulless Dullards
27 September 2002 | by (Toronto, Ontario, CANADA) – See all my reviews

A beautiful, poignant film. An agoraphobic's imaginative but troubled husband takes off with their son in a 1949 Pontiac to mark the 1969 lunar mission with a 'perfect act:' To match the mileage on the Pontiac and their arrival at a national park 'moon' crater to coincide with the distance to the moon and the astronauts' landing at 'Tranquility Base.' The agoraphobic wife overcomes her self-imposed, seven-year confinement in their house to pursue them in another unusual vehicle from her husband's collection. Various misadventures ensue. Watch for 'cameos.'
