Numerous errors with the license plate on the car the 2 FBI agents took Adaline away in the beginning of the film. The tag marks the year being 1954 where the iconic black and gold lettering California plate wasn't introduced until 1963. Also, there's 7 numbers used on this plate which not only breaks from the standard 3 letters followed by 3 numbers format used at the time, but California plates didn't hit a 7th character until 1980. Also the design the the plate is completely backwards The California was at the top along with the left and right tag slots and all the lettering and numbers had rounded corners not sharp, chiseled edges with serifs as seen on the plate in the film.

The acting in this I cannot fault, though Adeline has a very low range of emotions given the material, her demure persona is a sign of the times in which she was raised. Perhaps it was the stiff upper lip if the early 20th century? I have never seen the male lead and he suited his part well.
I watched this with my mother and daughters ( sobbing continued on both sides with both generations for different reasons, but both centred around loss). I felt torn, suitably watching this with both generations, as to what part of the film affected me most. Those with children and aging parents will understand when viewing this.
The soundtrack was beautiful and the song played during the most emotive scenes is both beautiful and haunting enough for me to seek it out.
A beautiful movie, which is a little in the fantasy realm in its explanation behind the mortality/immortality aspect which makes it almost fairy tale like, but beautifully executed, and gorgeously told. See it with your mother or daughter, or like I did, both! Take your tissues!
