When the first news people chase Susan Sarandon's character to her car the camera's battery falls off. With a nod to continuity it stays off in the following shots of the scene. Factually though this would render the camera useless. The camera wouldn't work and since the viewfinder is electronic it would be dead, or blank. Even in the extremely unlikely event the cameraman didn't notice the weight and balance change of the battery having fallen off the camera's shutting off and being dead would have been noticed by the cameraman.

This film is about a mother of seven sons, who had a premonition dream about something bad will happen to one of her sons. As their family learns about the tragedy, they come together and learn to love each other again.
"Safe Passage" is a drama about real people, real family and real life situations. The characters are down to earth and authentic. they could our next door neighbours or even ourselves. Hence, I find myself connecting with the characters and the story of "Safe Passage".
Susan Sarandon is superb as a stressed out mother. She acts her character's emotions well, be it love, stress, anxiety, guilt or anger. I like the flashbacks and the home videos, as they provide further insight into how the past shaped the character's personality. "Safe Passage" is an engaging drama.
