Description

The biographic drama tells the story of a real person. The subject is usually a known person of some celebrity but may also be a relatively ordinary person who enacted or who was caught up in extraordinary events.

Some biographic stories are based very loosely on the life of real people, for example where authors add story elements such as a love interest or action sequences. The story might also be a 'what if' tale, based very loosely on the character.

Example

The last king of Scotland
The Queen
Erin Brokovich

Discussion

There are some people whose lives are stranger than fiction or otherwise remarkable to the point of being a really good yarn. The stories told may astonish us or otherwise evoke sympathy or other emotion. In fact we might not believe them if it were not for the biographical tag.

A celebrity's name is a brand in itself and lends credibility to a story. This helps a great deal in publicity and marketing. If still alive,

In connecting reality with storying, biographies give life in return to fiction as they realize the story form.
