Sydney wants Irving to flee with her to Estonia or Romania. At the time Estonia was solidly part of the Soviet Union and Romania was a brutal Stalinist dictatorship. Neither would have been necessarily impossible to get to but seem dangerously impractical destinations for Sydney to even consider, even with the law on her heels.
The film opens with the late 1970s Columbia Pictures logo, as well as 70s-stylized logos for Atlas Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures.
