A Different Eisenberg!
23 May 2020 | by sarafkeriakousSee all my reviews

I actually like this movie so much. I don't know why people are criticizing Eisenberg that much in the movie. I loved him in this role. Actually I see a diffferent Eisenberg , This role is so different from his other movies. Also I have to say that the soundtracks of the movie are AMAZING! I recommend anyone who loves historical movies to watch this one, regardless all the negative reviews about it.
