The movie Confucius is obviously based on the historical person of the same name, founder of the philosophical movement of Confucianism. Personally, I know a little about Confucianism but really less than I’d like to. Therefore, this movie appeals to someone like me. However, I must admit, beyond a simple Wikipedia search, I don’t really know how much of the movie is autobiographically accurate and how many liberties were taken. Based on my meager prior knowledge and the wiki-gods, the movie seems to draw on true events and stories. I’m sure others will disagree. Having said all that, I really learned a lot.
