A surprisingly true story
5 October 2018 | by cheer88See all my reviews

While watching the movie, I was thinking the unassuming and uneventful details seemingly resembled to the realities of possible life story. To my own curiosity , I did some diggings online and found out it was a true story. If it would have been fictional, more dramas would be added to entice audiences.

However, following the history of the story without changing the period would be my preference. The reason I said so because the subject is hard to be glorified into a undying romance like Romeo and Julia no matter under any circumstances. Incest happened most likely in some unusual circumstances. This one happened to be in an abusive marriage which might win audience's empathy and understanding instead of appalling which would be the likely response. The ridiculous scene with the helicopter should be cut. It was confusing with modern and 17 century surrounding interchanged. It might be a better idea just following the event historically and presenting this human tragedy to audiences truthfully.

Real story should be told as it is to respect its facts.
