David Green chooses to play football on Rosh Hashana, as opposed to observing the holiday. That evening, the scene cuts to David reciting "Avinu Malkenu" in the school chapel, when the principal walks in and reminds David that his holiday ended at sundown. In actuality, Rosh Hashana is a two-day holiday and would have extended through the following day. Assuming the football game was played on a Saturday, there is no possibility that this was the second day of Rosh Hashana, as Rosh Hashana never ends on a Saturday night (the two-day observance may only begin in the evening on a Sunday, Monday, Wednesday or Friday).
