The Imitation Game

Factual error: In the scenes at Kings Cross railway station in London, overhead wires are visible above the train; Kings Cross did not have these until 1975.

Character mistake: Joan Clarke pronounces the name of the mathematician Euler to rhyme with "ruler", when in fact it is pronounced "oiler."
