Clint Eastwood can do what he damn well pleases, and in The 15:17 to Paris he takes a true story and casts the heroes of it as themselves.
Based on The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes – the autobiography of a trio of American soldiers who faced a terrorist attack on a Paris-bound train by Jeffrey E.
