There are so many true stories out there that make it to film and end up being better and often times more unbelievable than those made up. The latest, The Mauritanian is based on the New York Times best-selling memoir featuring a great cast including Jodie Foster, Tahar Rahim, Zachary Levi, Saamer Usmani with Shailene Woodley and Benedict Cumberbatch, but does it capture to the true struggle or is it a fight not worth having?

The Mauritanian follows the true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi who is captured by the U.S. Government and languishes in prison for years without charge or trial. Losing all hope, Slahi finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander and her associate Teri Duncan. Together they face countless obstacles in a desperate pursuit for justice. Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by formidable military prosecutor, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch, eventually reveals a shocking and far reaching conspiracy.
