Goofs

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

At one point (around the 1:17 mark) Fern encounters a young man whom she had met earlier in her travels. As they sit together she recites Shakespeare's Sonnet 18. Twice she makes errors. First she substitutes the word 'undimmed' for 'untrimmed', then 'walkest' for 'wandrest'. However, this may have been done deliberately as before reciting the poem, Fern says "Let's see if I can remember it".

Anachronisms 

When Fern receives the message from Linda Mae containing the video of the swallows, she is watching it on a large iPhone with a 2D interface. This part of the film is set in September 2011, at which time neither this type of iPhone nor that version of iOS had been introduced.

Character error 

Swankie says she has the book "Final Exit", by Jack Kevorkian. Although it may have been a deliberate error and could be incorrectly regarded as a goof, the book was written by Derek Humphry. He makes some references to Kevorkian and even has a chapter on him, but Kevorkian did not write or help write the book.

At the Thanksgiving celebration in Mendocino, David Straithairn's character likens the wineglasses clinking, very clearly, to 'the bells of ACROsanti.' Both his pronunciation and the subtitle spelling agree. He is referring to, however, the bells of ARCOsanti.

Continuity 

The shape of Fern's hair lock covering her right ear is the same when she is at her storage unit in the beginning of the movie as well as at the end of the movie, even though a year has passed. When she is in her vehicle though, arriving at the unit at the end of the movie, there is no hair lock.

Factual errors 

The view of Jupiter through the telescope is more like an image taken by Hubble (or at least by an expert photographer who really knows what they're doing) than what you would see with the naked eye, even with what appears to be a 12-inch reflector.

Revealing mistakes 

When Fern is talking on the phone, the screen is clearly lit up, even though normally phone screens go black when being held to the ear.
