Factual error: When Dr. Omalu is talking with Mrs. Waters, we are briefly given a shot of her entertainment console. Next to Dr. Omalu's head you can see a Blu-Ray disc player. Since most of this film takes place in late 2002, this is impossible because the modern Blu-Ray format wasn't even released until mid 2006. (01:09:35)
