When I think of a fictional depiction of a historical event, a straight-laced drama like Lincoln comes to mind. While it’s a great movie, it’s not something that I’m often in the mood to watch. A costume drama is not my go-to genre, which is why I steered clear from The Great, despite the good things I heard about it.
