I was recently watching Cast Away (2000), a huge hit for Tom Hanks (and the last time he was nominated for an Oscar). This time around something stuck out that I'm sure didn't occur to anyone when they made it.
So he finally gets off the island and at the end of the film delivers the package. He's driving away and stops at a crossroads, trying to figure where to go next. (I guess it's a metaphor, but I ignore them in films.)
The woman who owns the place he just delivered to drives by and gives him some directions. And it occurred to me this looks really weird today. Anyone under, say, 20, might have trouble figuring out his problem. Everyone has GPS on their phones now. No one needs to look at a map to figure out which way to turn.
The last shot of the film is his looking in the direction of the woman. Will he go after her? All I know is GPS would have ruined the ending.
