Without drama, what’s a story?
I must confess I like added drama. It spices up a movie/book, and brings excitement to real life happenings.
The movie Jaws for instance was based on a factual story. The real events (in the book) and the fictitious events (in the movie) keep you riveted right to the end when the great white is killed.
The book Close to Shore by Michael Capuzzo is a brilliant read, and of course the movie Jaws is legendary.
