Goofs

After Matt hits the window with a rock, the scene turns to Elizabeth at her desk. She turns to the window and walks over to it. Look at the walls and window: The walls are at about a 20 degree angle all the way down, indicating a full attic. When the scene switches to the outside, now you can see the roof is lower pitch, and the window is clearly cut out of the roof. The two do not match. See more »
