Goofs

When the first news people chase Susan Sarandon's character to her car the camera's battery falls off. With a nod to continuity it stays off in the following shots of the scene. Factually though this would render the camera useless. The camera wouldn't work and since the viewfinder is electronic it would be dead, or blank. Even in the extremely unlikely event the cameraman didn't notice the weight and balance change of the battery having fallen off the camera's shutting off and being dead would have been noticed by the cameraman.

User Reviews

 
Very true to life.
27 November 1998 | by SteffySee all my reviews

As a mother of five I found this movie very enjoyable. The writer got to the heart of motherhood and marriage, and all frustrations that go along with it. I am sure that women watching it could relate to the feeling of wanting a life of their own and the guilt that comes with it. The story was told with sensitivity. Susan Sarandon out-did herself as usual.
