Goofs

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.

Just Enjoy This Emotional Tapestry As It Is Woven
3 May 2015 | by (Gainesville, Florida) – See all my reviews

This movie touched me personally at a number of levels, because I lived in San Francisco, "the one that got away" looked a lot like B.L. and my (very happy) marriage is like the one H.F. portrays. I found B.L. hauntingly beautiful, and this story a tapestry of feelings unfolding; especially her surrender versus flight. Her encounter with H.F. from out of her past is powerful for both characters. And I thought the resolution of her immortality was quite a pleasant surprise that made me smile after being teary-eyed most of the movie. The last few minutes of the movie are especially beautiful if you are a romantic like me. This is a sweet movie that you will really enjoy.
