I went and saw this over the weekend. A really good movie. I liked it. But that being said, it was a slow, almost monologue.
On one hand, it’s a great story, and really good movie. One of the best ones I’ve seen this year. But this hasn’t been a great year for movies. I don’t mind the slower pacing of a mostly dialog movie. From what I can tell, it took a lot of little liberties on timelines, and dialog, and little stuff to make a "better" movie, but it’s "based" on real events.
If you like the historical drama-thriller genre, you’re probably going to like this movie. A lot.
