This movie charts the last sixty days in the life of speed ace Donald Campbell (Sir Anthony Hopkins), who, in 1967, famously crashed his craft "The Bluebird" while trying the break the three-hundred-mile-per-hour barrier on Coniston Water.
On May 26, 2001, Donald Campbell's remains were found, and the next day were placed in a casket and raised to the surface for a proper burial.
The scene on the evening before the record attempt, we see Donald Campbell picking up the phone and calling his wife. This was not correct. In fact, it was his wife who telephoned him. First she tried (through the operator) to reach him at the hotel, but he was not there. He was in the boathouse. So the operator connects her there. However, before the operator puts her through, he wishes Donald "good luck"for tomorrow.
