At the beginning of the scene where Meg decides that she must be the one to go back to get Charles Wallace, her hair is pulled back into a loop bun with only a few hairs loose (at 01:40:41 as she speaks with her father). In one of the shots in the same scene, it is still a loop bun, but there's a considerable amount of hair that is out (at 01:40:58 after her Emily Dickinson quote), and then in the shot right after that, it's back to being neat with only a few hairs out.

As adaptions go, this movie is adequate. It captures much of the spirit of the original book, and it makes good use of some excellent casting (the three child regulars are exceptional, especially Katie Stuart). Unfortunately, things are bogged down by too much uplifting music, and the modifications to the ending will have L'Engle purists fuming. You can see the evil hand of Disney in the final speech to the people of Camazotz.
Not an actively bad movie, but it's just there. Personally, I'd rather read the book.
But I will keep my eye out for the next project Ms. Stuart is involved in.
