The DVD finally arrived yesterday from Netflix. Sat down and watched it immediately.
Anyone else have a hard time NOT comparing the movie to Schindler's List? Mass killings, unintentional heroes save thousands, etc. Scary thing is that both are based on true stories.
My only hesitation in recommending the movie is that I realize that whenever Hollywood takes a movie 'based' on a real story, there's always exaggerations, especially in character development. I want to understand the real nuances of the title characters. No one is all good. Everyone has their demons. I think that showing more of those demons, makes it more relatable to see yourself in the situation portrayed. Would you have done the same thing?
I'd like to think I would but the reality is likely farther from the truth. We need to be concious of the little things we can do every day to defend the values we hold dear. Then, maybe, it won't come to the point where we have to take such drastic action later on.
