How accurate are these true crime movies really?
What does "based on real events" truly mean for these films?
We've all watched a movie that is supposedly "based on true events," but what does that actually mean? Hollywood is allowed to take a lot of creative license, so it's often up to the directors if they want to keep things just as they were or add a little more theatrics to the history.
The newest true crime film to hit the screens will be 'Hustlers,' starring big names like Jennifer Lopez, Keke Palmer, Constance Wu, Cardi B, Julia Stiles, and Lizzo. While the story is crazy enough on its own, audiences are waiting to find out if the film will stick to the facts, or go for the flair.
