Did You Know?


When Frances McDormand's character reprimands Billy Crudup's character over the phone, Crudup actually was on the other end of the line.


Elaine Miller: I can't believe you wanna be Atticus Finch. Oh, that makes me feel so good.
Young William: I like him.


When William Miller is in the Rolling Stone's conference room with Ben Fong Torres waiting for the fact-checker to return, a black telephone is on the corner of the table, to Miller's right. When the fact-checker returns, there are several quick cuts with the phone visible in each. As she leaves, that corner of the table is clearly visible, but the phone is not. In the next cut, the phone is there again.
