Adeline's 1940s-era California driver's permit states that it was issued by the "Motor Vehicle Commission" as authorized by the "Revised Statutes." In the 1940s, a California driver would have been carrying a driver license issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (established in 1915) as authorized by the Vehicle Code (enacted in 1935 to consolidate older laws enacted in 1913, 1915, and 1923).

This movie touched me personally at a number of levels, because I lived in San Francisco, "the one that got away" looked a lot like B.L. and my (very happy) marriage is like the one H.F. portrays. I found B.L. hauntingly beautiful, and this story a tapestry of feelings unfolding; especially her surrender versus flight. Her encounter with H.F. from out of her past is powerful for both characters. And I thought the resolution of her immortality was quite a pleasant surprise that made me smile after being teary-eyed most of the movie. The last few minutes of the movie are especially beautiful if you are a romantic like me. This is a sweet movie that you will really enjoy.
