Goofs

In the scene where Adele wakes up Ann to go see the sun rise, they are looking West out on the Pacific Ocean, but the sun would be rising in the East, not the West. To view anything in that direction, they would be watching the sun set. See more »

I picked this movie up because I was curious to see Natalie Portman in something that was pre Star Wars. I liked this movie. Natalie and Susan were wonderful as mother and daughter. Susan Sarandon is such an outstanding actor. Better and better with every movie she does.
