I see, Lurhmann can take an unlikely story then make a film with an even more unlikely story and this is then regarded as fact and a good movie? The harm in this is white children are robbed of their history and black children will lose faith in the only society that can help them.
Old fashioned politics? I would agree with you if it were true! This film is overblown, in accurate even by Hollywood standards and over long !
