Miscellaneous
When Eric and Patti are "naked" in bed after Eric returns from his first trip to Thailand, Patti is obviously wearing a body stocking.

Continuity
When Eric hugs Patti in the final scene, his watch shows the time as about half past six despite it obviously being the middle of the day.

Factual Mistake
Kanchanaburi POW camp was not captured by American paratroops. The camp was liberated by British and Indian infantry after Japan had surrendered.

Miscellaneous
The Royal Border Bridge at Berwick-on-Tweed is shown with overhead wires, which were not built until 1989.

Miscellaneous
Many of the train liveries shown in the UK were either long out of use by 1980 or in the case of the maroon West Coast Railway livery did not exist yet.
Trivia:
The real-life Patti Lomax attended the film's world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in 2013. She received a standing ovation upon the screening of the film.

The film uses compressed time to speed up the story. Eric Lomax and Patti Wallace did meet in 1980, but in reality they didn't marry until 1983. Eric didn't learn that Takashi Nagase was still alive until 1993, and they finally met in 1995.

Nicole Kidman felt intrigued to star in the film due to its theme of forgiveness.

Rachel Weisz was originally cast as Patti Lomax, but was forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts, with re-shoots planned for The Bourne Legacy (2012) and Oz the Great and Powerful (2013). Nicole Kidman replaced her after being asked to take the part by Colin Firth himself.
