spin of history
20 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

I was looking forward to seeing this movie when I found it on DVD. I am from Oswego, NY. Growing up in the 1970's the buildings that house the refuges still stood, and I heard stories from my grandmother (who was thirtysomthing during WWII) and my mom and her older siblings (who where in Jr. and Sr. high during WWII) how the immigrants were embraced by the town. Oswego is proud of this role of history and has turned fort Ontario and the other surrounding buildings into museums so that the world will not forget. This movie makes Oswego look very closed minded. Oswego is a university town that is very forward thinking. This movie is based on history however, I feel it is manipulated to to show the worse of the townspeople. Also the accent of the local people is not correct. the Oswego accent almost sounds Canadian, it is only 34 miles from Canada across the lake. One point of note, the snow depicted is accurate! I read the book it did a much better job telling the story without the spin.
