Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Kathy shows up to help Selma on the night shift, she is speaking, but her mouth is clearly not saying the words we hear.

Character error 

Selma nicknames Kathy with the wrong pronunciation - kvalda, instead of tsvalda. If Selma was of Czech origin, she would make such a mistake.

Even though Selma is from Czechoslovakia, her accent is neither Czech nor Slovak.

Continuity 

Despite the movie taking place in the mid-to-late 1960s, a clearly very modern train (from at least the late 70s) can be seen moving past Selma's house early on in the film.

When Bill tells Selma he has no money, Selma's hair repeatedly switches from being over her ears to being tucked behind them.

When Bill's police-issue pistol is first seen, it is a revolver (likely a .38 snub). However, when we see his gun again later in the film, it is a semi-automatic M1911, which is not a revolver. While both types of weapons were used by the police of the time, Bill is only mentioned as having one pistol, his standard-issue one from the police force, and is never mentioned as having two handguns.

Factual errors 

Surname of Selma's son should be a Jezek, not Jezková.

Revealing mistakes 

When Selma knocks on the door and her foreman answers it, the door opens from the wrong direction, and they are clearly not in the same factory building.
