    If one suspends disbelief for the sake of a movie I think that the flood could have been regional. Noah "could" have been living in the Black Sea basin when a glacier blocking the Bosporus gave way and the subsequent flood filling the basin would have seemed to have (to Noah anyway) covered the entire Earth. Floods are a common theme in all ancient cultures. For the sake of the movie....It could happen....

    In reality I think the story is allegorical and meant to be a teaching moment. That's assuming God exists.
