OK, in the list of movies that make you guys weep, there were several that were based on a true story. This is one of them - I watched it once and don't think I'll ever watch it again - not because it was a bad movie, but because it was too harrowing for me. Another like that for me and several of you is Schindler's List. There are some that take an historical event and build a story around it - like Titanic and Pearl Harbour and some that 'factionalise' part of the life of a person - like Miss Potter and Finding Neverland.
Do you think those movies that are inspired by actual events are all the more poignant or do you still weep buckets over movies that are pure fiction?
My answer, of course, is 'it depends'!!!
