While I did enjoy the movie. I think it’s impossible to actually figure out what exactly is going through Tommy’s head, it seems disingenuous to assume that you could know what he is thinking or feeling.
Everyone goes to great length to be as historically accurate as possible with the wardrobe, sets, and props. Aside from that it kind of just felt like they were making fun of him and laughing at him. A little too mean spirited for me.
