Anachronisms 

When Oscar's mother visits him in prison, the text on-screen reads "New Year's 2007." Oscar mentions seeing WALL·E with his daughter. That film was released in June 2008.
Right after Oscar finishes talking with his mom, on the morning of December 31, 2008, he drives by a crowd. One person in the crowd wears a Barcelona jersey from the 2010/2011 season.
The BART system maps inside the train cars were introduced in September 2009. All of the in-train scenes take place on December 31, 2008, and January 1, 2009.

Continuity 

After Oscar has told Sophina about losing his job and they kiss, he moves his hand to her neck in close-up, and again in the next medium shot.

On the subway platform, the police officer shoots Oscar in the lower spine. But when the paramedics examine him, a bullet wound is visible (and treated by them) on his chest near the shoulder, and later at the hospital, surgeons remove the bullet there as well.

Factual errors 

At the start of the prison scene, the text on-screen reads "San Quentin Federal Penitentiary". San Quentin is a state prison.

Plot holes 

When Oscar drops his daughter off at daycare, he has to knock on the door to enter with her. When he picks her up later, he walks up the side driveway, enters the back yard and starts playing with her. No one really acknowledges him.
