The quarantine is paying off. When watching "Lovely Women" at home, fans noticed a detail that passed when the period film was shown in theaters: two water bottles, one plastic and one Hydro Flask.
The film, based on the work of Louisa May Alcott, takes place between the years 1861 and 1865. The editing error was compared to another infamous case, when a cup of coffee was spotted in the background of a Game of Thrones scene.
The water bottles are behind Timothée Chalamet in one of the scenes in the feature. The first person to notice the foreign objects on the scene turned to Twitter to announce the discovery:

Other fans of the film went to see if it was not a montage, and found that the modern objects are really there:
