A dramatized version of events
on 25 February 2015
Too dramatized for my expectations and I wanted something more realistic. I've visited the house learnt the history and not sure the DVD does it justice. It tells a story but I'm not sure it is as true as the book actually tells it and I would have preferred a more factual rendition. Somehow it misses out on the fear and emotions that the family must have gone through and centers more on the characters.
Books are always more personal, and films often don't match your own ideas and this for me was a bit too much of a stretch from the books and facts that I read.
Actors are great and the film has a sincere message so please give it a look it is worth watching but the real thing is a bit different. Judge for yourself.
