esa vs. aquella

esa vs. aquella

In the quiz I just took, I was supposed to translate "that famous film". I said "Esa película famosa" and was marked wrong. The answer was "aquella película famosa".

Given that the usage is somewhat subjective, and depends on how close the person feels to the object, shouldn't "esa" also be correct?

Edited to add: looks like I can't delete the question. I just went back to my quiz results, and it looks like there's a hint that I missed, that the speaker was feeling distant from the film. So that explains it.
