The 8 Best True Story Movies You Must Watch

Best True Story Movies- Traditionally, the best type of movie for most moviegoers is one that they can relate to. Movies that are based on ‘true stories’ are no different.

With the plethora of stories that have emerged over the years, it’s hard to pick just one, so I’m going to list my personal favorite five, in no particular order.

8 of the Best True Story Movies of All Time

In our lives, we watch movies that portray the real stories of people. Those real stories can be inspiring, emotional, dramatic, and brutal.

But, they can also be uplifting, revealing, and a source of hope. They show the reality of life and hope for a better one. These are the best true story movies of all time.

1. The Imitation Game (2014)

The Imitation Game is a biographical drama film that is based on the life of Alan Turing, the famous mathematician, logician, computer scientist, and cryptanalyst.

The film tells the story of Turing’s life, who was also the gay man who has been famous for breaking the German’s Enigma Code. The film’s screenplay is written by Graham Moore, who won an Oscar for his screenplay.

This movie is about a mathematician who becomes a legendary WWII codebreaker, all while hiding his personal life between two of the most destructive world wars that the world has ever seen. After his homosexuality was criminalized in 1952, he takes his own life.

2. American Sniper (2014)

American Sniper is a biographical drama based on Chris Kyle, a US Navy SEAL who was the most lethal sniper in the U.S. military from 1999-2012.

Six years ago, Chris Kyle was a man who was known for his skill at his craft, but on the personal side, he was an individual who had trouble negotiating his way through the trials of marriage and raising his two children.

However, once he deployed to Iraq, the realities of war set in and his skills as a sniper brought him success. The enemy soon took notice and he became the most feared sniper in the world. The enemy was determined to kill him and countermeasures were introduced to identify and stop him.

3. 12 Years a Slave (2013)

12 Years a Slave tells the true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man from New York, who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841. It traces his life, including both the onset of the American Civil War and all the way up to his eventual release in 1853.

It is a documentary type of film, which translates to many close up shots of the characters so the viewers can see their emotions. Though it has an intimate feel to it, the movie still feels distant in some parts, especially when there are scenes of violence, which are seen throughout the movie.

4. Flight (2012)

A man with a drinking problem, heavy cocaine addiction, and an anger management problem is the pilot of a passenger flight that includes an unusual group of passengers. When the flight takes off, it is never clear who is in control.

It starts off with four rowdy ladies in the back, all of whom are talking over each other to get the pilot’s attention. They are being so loud that no one can tell them to get off of the flight. The flight is taking off, yet the pilot is still talking to them.

There is an old man in the row in front of them, but all of the rowdy ladies have claimed that row. He shouts, “Hey, old man, either move or move!” For further information, please read the article: “Movies Based on True Stories.

5. Selma (2014)

Selma is a biopic on the 1965 Selma to Montgomery marches led by civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The film depicts a tumultuous time of protest and change for a country coming out of the deepest south.

The film stars David Oyelowo as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and also depicts the life of President Lyndon B. Johnson. It does a good job of portraying both sides of the conflict through various characters.

The movie switches back and forth from the marches and the cabinet meetings debating the political and economic situation. One of the most powerful scenes of the film is when King and Johnson talk on the phone and King tells Johnson of the marches and he responds with “why can’t we all just get along.

” This is a powerful and moving dialogue and is a memorable quote from the film

6. Spotlight (2015)

The movie Spotlight (2015) is a biographical drama that depicts the story of a team of reporters. The reporters, who work for the Boston Globe, uncover a child molestation and cover up by the Catholic Church.
The reporters investigate and publish their findings and, as a result, the newspaper updates their policies and the public is shocked and appalled.
This past week I watched this film and I was able to see how this event changed the lives of the reporters and the Catholic Church.
The Boston Globe was not at all aware of the crimes being committed. They are alerted to this information when they are approached by an anonymous source.
The reporters are so dedicated to uncovering this scandal that they are willing to take on very dangerous situations  and don’t think twice about their own safety or comfort.
After they receive confirmation that something bigger is going on, the Boston Globe promptly sends out a request for all of their employees to come home and help with the coverage. They ask for help from the public as well, specifically by calling in anonymous tips.
One of their most publicized measures is working with Issue One. They work together to go through government records and uncover details that can’t be obtained by tapping on a computer.

7. First Man (2018)

The buzz in Hollywood is that this year’s “Oscar front-runner” is the movie “First Man”, the story of astronaut Neil Armstrong. Some people, such as Robert Kennedy Jr., claim that the moon landing footage is a fraud and the scenes were shot in a Hollywood back lot. This is clearly not true, and I can tell you there is no question that Neil Armstrong was a hero.

The movie is being produced by Damien Chazelle, who was the director of the acclaimed movie “La La Land.” It stars Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong.

It’s a biography of Neil Armstong, a man who risked his life to be an astronaut and became the first man to set foot on the moon.

I’ve been reading the biography by James R. Hansen of Neil Armstong, a man who risked his life to be an astronaut, training to be the first person to set foot on the moon.

I’m reading about his successful trips to the moon, his hazardous travel with Apollo 11, and his journey in orbit. It’s about how he manned the historic Apollo 11 mission in 1969- with just over 300,000 miles to Earth – when his crew were translated into history.

8. Moneyball (2011)

Moneyball, a 2011 movie based on a 2003 book by Michael Lewis, tells the story of a young manager in Oakland, Billy Beane, attempting to lead his team to success in an era when players were being valued by their statistics, not necessarily by their individual skill.

He had a limited budget and wanted to create a winning team. In order to do so, he turned to a man who didn’t have much experience in baseball, a University of Chicago economics professor by the name of Bill James, who developed a new way to look at the game called sabermetrics.

Bill James believed that pitching and defense were more important than offense and that by maximizing the number of runs allowed and minimizing the number of runs scored (opposite of the way other teams did it), you could get a winning team.

With the help of Bill James’ new sabermetric system, Beane was able to assemble a team that didn’t cost a lot and actually made the playoffs in 2002 and 2003.
