Errors in geography 

The train seen in an external shot as the Roosevelts travel to Georgia for the first time is clearly not of the same type as the train they are in. The train seen externally is British not American.

Revealing mistakes 

When the attendants lift FDR into the pool, the reflection in the water shows Kenneth Branagh's two completely healthy legs, instead of the computer-generated images of legs used throughout the film to represent Franklin D. Roosevelt's disfigured appearance.
