Did You Know?

Errors in geography: On the jetty, the union representative offers Kathryn some donut holes from a box that is clearly labeled "Timbits" (meaning they came from the Canadian chain Tim Hortons). Although there are a few Tim Hortons locations in the USA, none is in Boston where the scene is supposedly set.See more »

All in all a pretty good story., 21 December 2006
Author: nikmat1 from United States

I liked the picture very much and realized at the end that it was not being filmed in Ireland but in Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, the site of the real, disastrous Swiss Air Flight crash several years ago. I have pictures that I shot in exactly the same spot which features the light house which you can see as they zoom in on the crash site at the end of the movie. The end credits did not include any of the actual location sites or credit giving to any of the establishments where they did the filming.The ending was a bit abrupt without mention of what happened to the character played by Scott Campbell. All in all, however, it was better than most of this type of story.
