Would in the last review question "onun kedileri onların kedileridir" also have been correct? I don't use the "-dir" form often, but here it sounds like it could clear thinks up.

Yes, that would be totally acceptable :)

I have a question about pronunciation. When the first character "Selin" says "buraya getirdim", it sure sounds like she says bu-RAY-yay and not BU-rah-yah the way I would have expected it to sound phonetically. Is that a matter of accent, or casual speech, or what?

Re: "Kedileri" is ambiguous because "ler" is never repeated in a Turkish word. (from the review questions)

There are situations where it can be repeated. E.g. evLERindeydiLER.
