Reading review here before watching the movie on TV got me unsure about it. However, this is a very decent movie that I really enjoyed watching. Anybody rating it under 4 stars or 10 (!) lacks credibility.
It is far from perfect, but it is a nice try at showing this interesting true-story that I did not know of. Good actors were used and they offered what we can expect of them. The movie started a bit slowly but I did not mind. This is not your usual Hollywood movie, not as fast moving, but to me that's not bad. It was realistic (much more than most Hollywood movies of the genre). I think the end could have been better, but it was acceptable.
