"I don't know if it's based on a real true story."
"It's based on a novel, which was based on a true story. It's like a fictionalized account of something vaguely true, to whatever degree we can even know if details about something from the 16th century are true or not."
"[My friend] said she thought it was going to be like a documentary. But it didn't feel true at all. You know, if it's just based on a novel, eh, I can take it or leave it. I can't say I felt all that much watching it. It's about a king and all of his indiscretions. I didn't think that much of it. If it's a true story, it's a piece of history, you look at it differently. But if most of it is just imaginary or fictionalized, big deal. He has an indiscretion, sexually, and they were very strict when you were married back then. Not like the world now. Now people have mistresses and it seems like everyone looks the other way. Anyway, I didn't think much of this picture."
