Movie Genre:
B I O P I C
By its very nature, the biopic (biographical pictures) exists across many genres. It could be a war film, an epic, or a melodrama. Yet there are characteristics that mark the biopic out as a genre of its own.
A biopic is essentially a dramatized portrayal of the life of a famous figure. In a conventional biopic, the protagonist falls from the height of fame and then goes on to make a triumphant comeback. It was German-born William Dieterle who set the pattern with numerous biopics. A close resemblance between the actor and the real-life figure was achieved by Henry Fonda in Young Mr.Lincoln (1939), Kirk Douglas as Van Gogh in Lust for Life (1956), Ben Kingsley in Gandhi (1982), Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash in Walk The Line (2005) and Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network (2010). Take a look at some of the best performances in biopic films.
