It is true that cinema is all about creativity and imagination. But, sometimes certain events are so inspiring and striking that they deserve a big screen adaptation. So as a roundup, here are the top 2 movies that are based on real life incidents which emerged as a box office success as well.
The Social Network:
The Social Network is one of the best movies based on true story. The film revolves around the life and times of Mark Zuckerberg, reprised by Jessie Eisenberg and depicts how a simple concept went on to become one of the biggest social networking websites of all times. At the dorm in Harvard to its reach till Namibia and Netherlands, this is a story that is truly inspiring. Scripted by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Finch, this one stands till because of unbiased treatment and being filmed and released during the times of the titular character being alive and well… And watching! The movie managed to show both good and the bad and a little bit of gray too. Zuckerberg didn’t like what he saw and laughed it off really, but his fan-fanatics took to it and found the movie eulogizing him to a good extent. All said, it maybe fictitious in its version, but on the whole a good movie watching experience.
Catch Me If You Can
Titanic made him a sensation among teens, but with Catch Me If You Can he turned a man. We are talking about Leonardo Di Caprio here, folks. He can look a boy and a man at the same time, that’s his skill and for this character of Frank Abagnale Jr. he suited the role to the T. And then to counterweigh his character there was Tom Hanks, one of the best actors of his generation playing the cop Carl Hanratty. It was a cat and mouse game that played out through the movie, but with emotions. You feel for the protagonist’s emotional journey and forgive his con play. It’s a movie that truly has a happy ending.
So, do checkout the movie guys!
