Accuracy of Padre Pio movie

I am watching a movie about the life of St. Padre Pio that was produced in Italy. I really like it but I saw a part tonight that I’m not sure about. There is a character named Cleonice that is very close to him. Nothing wrong is ever done, it just seems like the movie shows them as being really close.

Does anyone know if this is true or did they just add it in the movie for dramatization?

I was also wondering how reputable are the movies about the lives of the saints? I saw one about St. Rita that didn’t portray her life the way I’d read at all.

This is the link to the video:
