Trivia
A dramatic re-imagining of J.K Rowling's life supported by few facts. Facts are tied together with dramatic guessing. For instance, why does she divorce her husband? Abuse and rape. How did she come up with the protagonists name? A dream followed by quick answers... What's his name? Harry Potter. What's he doing? Riding a train. Where to? Wizard School.

Goofs
When Joanne graduates from university, the University Officers and the new graduates are all shown wearing American-style academic dress with a closed gown and a gold stole. English university graduates wear open fronted gowns with an academic hood and no stole. In addition, the new graduates are wearing royal blue gowns. Exeter University gowns are black; the hood is dove grey, edged in blue taffeta.

When she is turned down by Oxford, Joanne's father suggests she go instead to Exeter which is "a good school." Exeter is a university and universities in England are not called "schools" (although some of them call their separate faculties schools, such as the "School of Medicine".)

Rowling's parents lament that due to their lack of means, they will have to send their children to "public school" to be educated. In England, a "public school" is a type of privately-run school funded by (prohibitively high) fees - the term "state school" should presumably have been used.

JK Rowling: What do you think, will you ever see Harry Potter in there? Not bloody likely.
