* AdaptationDyeJob: This is probably the most notable factual error in the film. While Rowling is blonde today, she was a redhead during the time period much of the film takes place. Nevertheless, the film portrays her as blonde throughout. Whether the filmmakers didn't know better or [[ViewersAreMorons thought she wouldn't be recognizable enough otherwise]] is unclear.

* FakeBrit: Poppy Montgomery (Australian) as Rowling. Additionally, most of the cast is Canadians playing Brits (the film is an American production, but was filmed in movie-friendly [[StargateCity Vancouver, Canada]] with local talent). Ironic that Rowling famously demanded this trope be averted in the ''Harry Potter'' films only for it to be played straight in her own (albeit unauthorized) biopic. On the plus side, [[Series/StargateAtlantis Dr. Carson Beckett]] is Rowling's father.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Every now and then, we're treated to background music which is apparently meant to sound vaguely like {{John Williams}}' ''Harry Potter'' themes.
