What is the secret to making a great fact-based drama for the screen?

It’s certainly not merely the event itself. For example, there is the inevitable movie spinoff of the actual Hatton Garden raid by a load of old criminal geezers. To me, the only true interest lies in CHARACTER and NARRATIVE. None of these guys, as presented in media reports, nor the actual story of their raid (as opposed to the mechanics of it) represent interesting characters or narrative(s) to me. So if I had been asked, I’d pass!
