Goofs

The scene where Mae dresses down the kids for treating Josephine badly scene smacks of 1980s political correctness in the 1870s. Where the real anachronism is when Mae says, "But one I hope you never make again, is turning against someone you care about, because someone else put a label on them." That phrase did not exist until the invention of label makers. See more »

Quotes

Mae Woodward: Are you picking out names for the baby?
Josephine: No. Henrietta Louise is already taking care of that for me. If it's a boy, it's to be Henry. If it's a girl, Louise. One way or another, it will be named after Henrietta Louise.
