Napoleon = cinematic gold?

According to Cinematical, there are two very different movies based on Napoleon's time in exile on St. Helena coming down the pike: Napoleon and Betsy, a historical romance starring Harry Potter's Emma Watson, and the just-announced adaptation of Staton Rabin's children's book Betsy and the Emperor. Both movies are loosely inspired by the true story of Napoleon's (platonic) friendship with a teenage girl he met during his imprisonment.

Thankfully, only one of them is a romance, and seeing as Napoleon was in his forties when they shipped him off to St. Helena, and this kid was apparently 14, I know which movie I'll be skipping.

Sorry, Hermione.
