Factual error: When Griet is introduced to the camera obscura, far too much light is projected onto Vermeer's and Griet's faces. Camera obscuras don't make their own light; rather the image produced on the viewing screen is always dull.
Vermeer: Look at me. Now, turn your head. Not your shoulders. Look at me. There. That's it.
Catharina: Is it true she wore my pearls? How could you? How could you?
Griet's Mother: Stay clear of their Catholic prayers. Or if you must be with them when they pray, stop your ears.
Question: Does Greit say yes when Peiter asks her to marry him? I couldn't work this out.
