Oooh, I just discovered a German documentary about #alexanderthegreat on Netflix (currently taking advantage of a free trial month) - now that's my catnip! As always I'm curious to see how they'll portray my boy Hephaestion... (Thanks to Mary Renault for my obsession with this particular part of history.)
Update on the #alexanderthegreat documentary
Update on the #alexanderthegreat documentary: "good friend", "faithful companion" all over, not a single mention of anything not straight (like the rumour that the bodyguard who killed Philip was avenging being raped or Achilles and Patroclos being lovers). Roxane was mentioned ("love at first sight") but no Stateira or mass wedding. Overall very meh.
