We've had no shortage of biopics of late, be it Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman, or Baz Luhrmann's forthcoming film about the life of Elvis. Here, we look back at 10 of the best celebrity biopics - the films that help us to see their famous subjects anew - from troubled country stars to iconic artists.
Walk The Line, 2005
Walk The Line‘s insightful, candid portrayal of Johnny Cash is based on two autobiographies authored by the country singer-songwriter: 1975’s Man in Black: His Own Story in His Own Words and 1997’s Cash: The Autobiography. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon excel as Cash and June Carter with ample time given to their enduring chemistry, as well as the demons that blighted the former’s career. Ultimately, this is a tale of music, redemption and a love that conquered all.
