...Biopics & False Depiction cont.
     Admitting some of the films had great story lines and revealed very insightful portrayal of the characters;
 However, plenty backlash came about from fans as well saying some of the movies didn't dig into the true personality of their admired artist or nothing about the story was believable.
When facts are left out or endings are left unanswered it leaves a viewer to wonder, 'Was this really the person I grew to love?'
     After requesting that a biopic NOT be made about her daughter, a mother went on to say,
"There is often a fine line that separates elevation and degradation in the industry. What lifts up one person in the headlines may in fact destroy another. I don't think it ever entered their minds that they were assaulting the legacy of another individual; they just want the job or the opportunity to shine."
     




 
     This brings a valid point. Why make a movie about someone who is no longer present to defend their own story? Especially after their family members, the people who knew them the most, disapprove the idea. Not only can it come off as disrespectful but it can also bring a certain burden to the family that has to relive personal moments. 
     Some directors who were guilty of misrepresenting Stars claimed to have knowledge on the characters while others showed no remorse by publicly stating they didn't care if people hated their movie as long as the ratings were successful. Real life is one thing. Entertainment is another. 
Is it fair to recreate someone's history due to entertainment purposes?
Think about what type of message this sends.
