One character in this film refers to multiple partners as a Mormon practice. Polygamy, known as the marriage of more than one woman to the same man, was practiced in the early history of the Mormon faith (officially known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) but was banned nearly 120 years ago.
