Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hollywood has a key role in the narcissistic view that the view US has of itself, and history 'reimaginings' are SOP.

I don't agree that this shouldn't be taken seriously - I think TV and cinema are key tools for building national narratives, and I'd be surprised if viewers don't assume the film is accurate history.
