(at around 12 mins) When discussing Columbus' journey John implies that there was still widespread belief that the earth was flat. In fact, since the time of the Greeks it had been relatively common (educated) knowledge that the earth was round. (Columbus' error was in underestimating the diameter of the earth and thus the distance to Asia by a westerly route. Luckily, he bumped into the Americas where he'd roughly calculated Asia was supposed to be, otherwise they'd have been lost at sea.) See more »

...every so often you will see a film or hear a story that will take your breath away and leave you wondering...this is one of those stories.
That said it is probably not for everyone. If you don't want your believes challenged you should probably stay away from this one. The film is all about the characters and their dialog, it is what makes or breaks the film, and I must say they did an excellent job, it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, wanting to hear more. All this topped with great acting makes this a film really worth seeing.
It goes to show that you can make great films these days without explosions and killings...so simple yet so effective. Great movie!
