In the scene in the Lafayette cemetery, we see that Libby has been put in a mausoleum and then put in a coffin with a body. This is a factual error since burials at the Lafayette cemetery do not involve actually burying people by themselves in a coffin that stays that way forever. The burial process involves putting someone in a very simple wooden box and letting them decompose with other members of family who have been buried before hand. Also the process to open a mausoleum is considerably harder than just opening a door. Bricks and mortar and usually a name plate/stone must be removed to get into a mausoleum. Also under the same line there is not a single mausoleum within the cemetery that would have a window in it. Burials also usually involve the traditional catholic mourning period of 366 days before the mausoleum is opened again, so even if someone had just been recently buried the body that Libby is put next to would not be as un-decomposed as shown in the movie.

I couldn't belive it when I read these comments and most of them were negative. This is one of my favorite movies!! I absolutely loved it. I think Ashley Judd is an incredible actress and Libby is my favorite character that she plays. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. What I love most is all the steps she goes through to finally find her husband and son. I just feel like screaming "GO Girl!!" like half the time. I love the character of Libby and how she is so strong and smart and doesn't take any crap from anybody. I don't know why people didn't like this movie more. I think it is wonderful and really touching about a mother's love. Regardless of what these other comments say... go see this movie!! Decide for yourself what you think but I doubt you will be bored. Wonderful movie!! 10/10
