A LIFE ON FILM

Many biographies have been given a filmic adaptation, and whether the subject is famous and adored or notorious and vilified, here we select the standout biopics that really put the audience in the time and place of the historical figure. Some may draw on historical accuracy whilst others revert to hyperbolic fictionalisation, this collection highlights the narrative variety of how to re-tell a person’s life story on screen.
