The Dec. 18, Filmland, "Promised Lands," contained a pair of geographical errors. In the movie The Homesman, Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones' characters were headed for Iowa and the Nile was the river on which an infant Moses was set afloat, as the story goes. The Journal regrets committing these geographical errors of biblical proportions (but at least we're not in duh-Nile about them).
