Format Watched: DVD

Very much a dramatised documentary and one which will not appeal to ardent film-goers. Can’t advise anyone to sit through unless, like me, they want to know a bit more about American history of the time. Some parts overly sentimental and others seemed overly simplified (or even altered for dramatic effect?). Some good acting but it’s lost in the bullet-point depictions of events.

Production actually quite intense in places so don’t chuck it if you like a little bit of the old grit in some very simplified history.

Not one I’d ask anyone to sit though as a movie, more just a bit of education.

DVD Extras: As you’d expect, only a couple of commentaries.

Watchability (once, twice, etc.)

Keep DVD?
Watch if on TV?
Hug, Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Avoid. There are so many other ways to understand and educate yourself on this subject.
