This is a good read.

When Fact and Fiction Collide: Are Filmmakers Irresponsible to Blur the Line?

There is fact, and there is fiction.

Except in movies where the two combine, for friction—and in stories that end up being neither completely true, nor utterly false.

So, understand the difference between dramatization and documentary.

Dramatization is based on real people and real events, but usually has to invent dialogue, create scenes, and uses poetic license.

Personally, I think filmmakers vary widely in how closely they hew to historical fact, when creating dramatization. One of the worst in this regard is that schmuck Mel Gibson.
