When Mr. Sperry challenges the boys to form a chain stretching from a tree to a $5 bill he places on a picnic table (at around 1h), shots from behind the boys show half the table in sunlight, while the reverse shots (which had to be shot on a different day) show the table completely in shadows.

Highly Recommend This Film
I saw a pre-release version about two months ago. As a fan of movies with car chases, explosions, and superhuman exploits, I did not expect to really get into this movie.
The story deals with the relationships between characters in a small town in 1970 and feels like a coming-of-age movie as a young man and his friends deal with a childhood crush on a young lady. The boy-meets-girl subplot is a slight of hand before the real plot unfolds. And the resolution of one of the other subplots is the final coup de grace of the film.
I found the film moving and well worth watching...again.
The film opens today in limited release. My family and I are going to see it.
