In multiple shots, the Bay Bridge can be seen illuminated with artist Leo Villareal's installation "The Bay Lights". This installation was installed early January 2013 and opened officially March 2013. The film is set in the late 1990s/early 2000s and as such the work would not have been installed on the bridge.
