Film Do you think that 'historical' films have a responsibility to be accurate?
It's an arguable point. The Oliver Stones of the world will say, "No. History is there to be plundered for entertainment purposes the same as anything else." I don?t agree with that. I think that you do have a responsibility to it. But with drama you have to make certain concessions: very often, you have to make things more concise and that means cutting and putting things together. But I don?t think you can completely twist history ? it's very irresponsible because children don?t know very much history today. -- Helen Mirren gives a frank interview about acting and filmmaking to the RSA Journal.
