"You know, we're making films, right?" he said. "So obviously, they're not book reports, they're not history lessons. They may achieve some insight into history -- and we hope they do. But they're films and they should be entertaining and emotional and involve the audience -- and that's one of the primary goals for a film. Yes, we do have a high standard of wanting to get the story right, wanting to achieve an essential truth about the people and the event, so these things are scrupulously researched, and we do everything we can to try and tell the story in a balanced way. And the best thing for films like this is to let the audience draw their own conclusions."
