Whether true to the letter of the history books or dramatized to some degree the historical movie helps us as a culture to examine the times that came before. This genre helps us to get in touch with the past and examine our own times. Closely related to historical movies is the biopic. Biographies of people, whether famous or not, have always been a favorite of movie goers. Usually, there is a lot of dramatic license in these films. If you want the true life story it is rare that it can be found in a film. Some smaller independent films stick closer to the truth but most of the major studios bend things a bit.
