20 Times Biopics Were Completely Inaccurate
Even movies that are based on true events sometimes to feel more like fantasy. Whether they’re highlighting historical moments or honoring notable figures through biopics, filmmakers will go as far as adding new conflicts that never took place, inventing characters that didn’t exist, and even altering the details of certain incidents to fit a different narrative. While some have mastered the art of taking a few liberties to improve the film’s overall quality, others have made some bizarre and unnecessary changes that completely dismissed important history. And when it comes to biopics, they can actually be damaging enough to tarnish someone’s legacy – or clever enough to romanticize someone who was *actually* the worst.
