What’s changed and what’s retained…
After revision, the story and the characters remain, but I’ve tweaked the dialogue so there’s less of a sense that speeches derive from documents of the time, and the short scenes, which were commended in 2013, where necessary have been re-structured to give the audience a more satisfying experience.
