Pretty good film, that I found interesting from start to finish. It's pretty much an ode to Paterno really which I didn't mind, although it's surely mentioned that the situation was probably difficult to be looked upon as just black or white. It's a good cast all around too, Pacino gives a very good performance, and it's well directed with an engaging level of realism and flair. So then while the film has mostly tried to put Paterno on that pedestal as he was and is considered by so many, there's that very last scene to still stab a knife of doubt into that. Solid storytelling, enjoyed getting behind the scenes of a story I knew mostly on the surface only.

B+

It's all right. Extremely inaccurate, Pacino tried which was nice to see after almost 18 years of hamming it up

Specifically inaccurate how? Or do you mean just very fictious, in that there's no proof of certain scenes actually having happened.
