Typical biography which rewrites history.
Woodrow Wilson, was not a great President, was not a good President and was not even a good person.

The movie glosses over the fact that Wilson was a narrow minded, bigoted, sexist, racist jerk who dragged the country into a war it did not need to get involved in. His Justice department violated the civil rights and civil liberties of many Americans.

As for the League of Nations, its already been said that if not for his stubbornness, he might have gotten the Senate to ratify the treaty.

Finally, his most serious crime was staying in office after his stroke instead of resigning which would have been appropriate. The Vice President could not take the reigns without it looking like a power grab. Wilson placed the country in danger with his selfishness.

If the United States had been invaded or attacked or if there had been a serious crisis, the country was leaderless to handle it. That condemns Wilson and he does not deserve to be placed among the greatest Presidents.
