Movie Info

Working in concert, narrator Liev Schreiber, historical texts and actor Simon Callow's theatrical reenactments paint a riveting portrait of Galileo Galilei -- a pioneering man of science. Considered the father of modern astronomy and physics, he was deemed a heretic in his day for advancing a radical theory: The sun is the center of the cosmos. This illuminating documentary recounts Galileo's astounding accomplishments and his personal conflicts.

Audience Reviews for Galileo's Battle for the Heavens

As an informative movie, Galileo's Battle for the Heavens succeeds just fine. But the filming is unimaginative (excusable, as it is a low-key TV documentary), but really? Italians speaking with British actions? Surely you can do better...
