During the "Family Dinner", a bottle of red wine is prominently displayed on the table. The table is viewed from several angles and it is clear that this is the only such bottle there. Lavinia suddenly rises and walks away but then returns to grab the bottle and this time leaves with bottle in hand (and mouth). The camera returns to the table where the bottle is once again prominently displayed. See more
