Gattaca

Factual error: When Vincent and Jerome are at the Gattaca building at night, they watch a rocket launch. The exhaust from a such a rocket would have lit the area around them or at least the nearby mountains bright as day.

Visible crew/equipment: When Ethan Hawke is picking out a suit and shoes, you see a distinct hand on the left side of the closet holding up what must be a false wall. (00:33:25)

Trivia: The staircase in the house of the real Jerome Morrows is actually a resemblance of a DNA structure. Similar to Watson and Crick's model, except for the fact that the staircase has a right-handed turn. The DNA helix is a left-handed turn.

Question: In the scene where Vincent is just about to launch, the doctor testing him mentions his son. My brother seems to think that the doctor knows Vincent is not who he pretends to be because he is Jerome Morrow's father. Is there any evidence for this?

Answer: None whatsoever. The doctor seems to have worked out that Vincent is not who he seems to be from simple observational evidence. It's because of his son that he feels sympathy for Vincent and hasn't revealed that he's tricking the system.
