Hi! Could you explain this indirect speech. "I saw a violent film last week. I know the blood wasn't real, but a lot of children don't know that," said Liz. My answer : Liz said that she had seen a violent film last week (not sure about the 'last week'). She also said that she knew the blood (hadn't been or wasn't) real, but a lot of children didn't know that.
Should I change the wasn't to hadn't been? Or both can be accepted? Thank you.
I would not change it to had been as she's talking about a fact that hasn't changed.
