Best Biographical movies & tv shows to watch so far in 2017

The bio-pic is a tricky genre, one that quite easily can be come rather dull because real-life can be quite dull. And even very interesting people don’t do something extraordinary every day. And that is also the second problem, a person can also be reduced to the amazing things they might have done, giving a very superficial image of the person in question. Lately it has become common, and this is a trend we encourage, to not try and tell the story of a whole lifetime, but to zoom in on just one period of time or one event. Like Selma, or the Steve Jobs bio by Danny Boyle.
