By night's end, when she and Lloyd are about to leave , it's nowhere in sight again. Miraculously, though, it reappears in the car in the wee hours of the morning as she reads inscriptions aloud to Lloyd.
Sense a pattern here? There's only one heroine in film that has mastered the art of making things disappear and reappear, and that's Harry Potter's Hermione Granger.
