Movies based on real events have a difficult task ahead of them: they need to keep the integrity of the event, but still tell a compelling story. If done poorly, it’s either a boring movie, or full of lies.  Stockholm, a film by Canadian director, Robert Budreau, tells the story of the Norrmalmstrog robbery; this movie is a complete fictionalized version of the event that took place. Though Ethan Hawke’s performance is captivating, Stockholm is an ultimately flawed movie about relationships, and survival.
