The movie is set in 1977. But the first shot of the movie shows the Washington Monument with the scaffolding used for its renovation in 2000.
When Mahree gets the birthday cake in the mall, the sparkler candle goes from being out to burning again between shots. It also goes from being straight to leaning to the right to straight again.
Amanda the secretary at the South African embassy told Mahree she was removed from the Dellums home because of backlash fears over Steve Biko's death. This would have been a day or 2 after his death on 12 September 1977 yet the same day Mahree is at the embassy the TV shows Biko"s funeral which actually occurred on 25 September 1977.
Right before Mahree and the Hofmeyers drive into the protesters, you can see a shot of the car waiting for the cue to drive in.
