I'm very interested in seeing this movie. I only hope they do it justice and don't cave to the anti science lobby in this country. So far the summary of the movie isn't too promising:
What happens when a world-renowned scientist, crushed by the loss of his eldest daughter, conceives a book which will prove the non-existence of God. This is the story of Charles Darwin and his master-work "The Origin of Species". It tells of a global revolution played out the confines of a small English village; a passionate marriage torn apart by the most dangerous idea in history; and a theory saved from extinction by the logic of a child.

I have a huge problem with this part: "conceives a book which will prove the non-existence of God". First of all, it's not like The Origin of Species just popped into his head one balmy Sunday afternoon. And it doesn't prove or disprove the existance of a God. It deals with Darwin's conclusions based on his scientific observations, some of which are still accepted as fact, some have been modified, and some have been shown to be false. I'll be really interested to see how the movie handles this subject.
