Wikipedia, Mar. 16, 2012 (A biographical film, or biopic (biographical motion picture), is a film that dramatizes the life of an actual person or people. They differ from films "based on a true story" or "historical films" in that they attempt to comprehensively tell a person's life story or at least the most historically important years of their lives.)
