When it comes to historical biopics centred around real life figures and stories, it's important that directors get their facts right.
Of course, it's near impossible to produce a film which is 100% accurate and some liberties must be taken in order to make the story a watchable piece of art. However, if a biopic seriously overlooks important details in an individual's life or story, fans, family members or even the person themselves will make it known just how full of sh*t the feature unfortunately is.
Yet, there have been a few occasions when directors have managed to not only create a biographical feature which is highly accurate, but also add tiny hidden details into the mix which make you appreciate the experience even more once discovered.
Unexpected practical effects, subtle moments of foreshadowing and brilliant secret homages in a character's costume have all been skilfully laced into some of the most compelling biopics we've ever seen on the big screen... without us even spotting them.
All ten of these flicks can honestly be classed as outstanding pieces of biographical cinema and each of these fantastic hidden details simply act as delicious cherries on top of the based-on-real-life cakes. So, let's dig in.
