It would seem that making a biopic about someone’s life would be the highest possible honor one could bestow. However, the production of a biopic is a challenging endeavor. When choosing the cast, the director must walk a fine line between selecting for their physical similarity and selecting them for the talent required to play the part. However, obtaining permission from celebrities or their families before making a film about them is the single most important step in the process.

Despite getting the nod from them, some movies have incited negative responses from the famous people who were supposed to represent them as well as a large number of fans. These movies added some false details, which led to people misunderstanding the characters’ personalities and habits, which in turn led to people having a negative opinion of the characters.

Margaret Keane was pleasant to watch the movie though it was about the worst part of her life. Amy Adams, who played Margaret in the movie, left Margaret with a particularly strong impression. She remarked that the other person had perfectly captured how I was feeling at the time. I don’t understand how she can pull that off without so much as uttering a single word.
