Watching a movie about cancer and a guy dies of cancer and now I’m sad.
I really don’t know what I was expecting.
Awww Elle that is one of my all time favourite movies!!
Hmm, so you guys all know that I love band of brothers, right? Well I was listening to an interview with the grandson of Eugene Roe, and they asked him how accurate the events in his episode were (my favourite, Episode 6; Bastogne).
He said that the hospital did exist, and Renee (the nurse/love interest) did exist but that she wasn’t a trained nurse, and no one knows if her and Gene ever met of if they had any lasting impression on one another (which is a part of the storyline, vaguely).
But he said that the episode had reversed the roles of Renee and Ella to make Ella the trainee, even though she was the nurse in real life, and Renee was the trainee.
And it just makes me sad that they could have easily done the exact same storyline but with a WOC as a main character and love interest instead of a white lady and it would be more historically accurate. But they decided to make the only kind of romantic plotline in the whole series with two white people. Wow. Refreshing.
I don’t know. Nothing against all the actors or anything. But why?? There doesn’t seem to be any reason for it except racism : (
