When Rhoda speaks with United Space Ventures CEO Keith Harding, Harding makes an off-beat comment that his headmaster once told him "you will either become a millionaire or go to jail".

After the car accident, we see a hole in the windscreen and John's son laying a few meters away from the car wreck, suggesting the impact had caused him to be thrown through the windscreen onto the street.
In a flashback later in the film, we can clearly see that John's son is wearing a seat belt immediately prior to impact, which would have prevented him from being thrown through the windscreen as a result of the accident. See more »
I saw this image when I was a kid. The photograph of Jupiter taken by NASAs Voyager. Beautiful. But nothing special until shown in rapid succession. Suddenly Jupiter was alive. Breathing. I was hypnotized.

This is one of the best films I have seen this year. I love science fiction and all that, but this film is not about that, if you are concerned about facts and fingers about space and whether x equals y and is it possible etc then don't watch this film. If you are wanting to watch a master piece of filming and directing with a truly hart felt story then this is for you, from the very beginning I was hooked until the final seconds of the film without interruption. Watch this film when you have time on your own in silence and sit back to enjoy a master piece in its own right. This film is in my top 20 of all time, watch it you will not be disappointed.
