The pioneering astronomer and condemned heretic comes to life in this fascinating film version of Dava Sobel's best-seller, Galileo's Daughter. British actor Simon Callow portrays the seventeenth-century genius who defied tradition and years of imprisonment to advance a new vision of the universe, recreated through letters from his devoted daughter Maria Celeste, a cloistered nun.
