When Rachel is struggling with the anchor chain, the padlock changes position between shots. In one shot it dangles a few inches below her feet (which, by the way, would mean there's enough slack in the chain to escape). In another shot it's at her ankles, where it was fastened in the first place. See more »
Why is it everyone paints their boats the exact same color as their houses?
Well, that's actually a tradition here. The wife needs to be able to look out on the water and know her husband's okay.
That's very romantic.
And we also get a tax-break on the paint, which is also very romantic.

I had never heard of this movie when my husband rented it, and was pleasantly surprised. Demi Moore was excellent, but i felt like Hans Matheson really was the top performer in this movie. His wonderful Scottish accent and sweet face made him extremely appealing, making you want to check out other movies he was in. The scenery was beautiful, and I absolutely fell in love with the light house. It was really neat to see wild horses on the light house island.
I loved the mysterious plot, but the movie left me a little sad. There were a lot of plot twists, and I watched the movie two days in a row to see if I could figure out a couple of things! This is a movie that I will probably buy to keep, so I can watch it from time to time.
