Top definition
A "biographical picture." A film that dramatizes the life of an actual person or people. Differs from films “based on a true story” or “historic films” in that they attempt to comprehensively tell a person’s life story or at least the most historically important years of their lives.
The People vs. Larry Flynt, Blow and Monster are biopics with dubious historical figures.
