Amistad (1997)

Factual error: While the movie depicts and later mentions that almost the entirety of the original crew of the Amistad was killed, this is simply untrue. In fact, only two people were killed; the cook, who was bludgeoned to death in his sleep, and the captain. Two crew members escaped using a canoe, and the cabin boy flat out refused to participate.
