The Cinema Lounge
The Cinema Lounge, a film discussion group, takes place at 7:00 PM at Teaism in Penn Quarter, 400 8th St., NW in Washington, DC (closest Metro stop is Archives, also near Metro Center and Gallery Place). NOTE: We will meet in the downstairs area. You do not need to be a member of the Washington DC Film Society to attend.
The Cinema Lounge meets Monday, July 17, 2017 at 7:00pm. Our topic is "The Biopic: Lives on Film." Biographical pictures, or biopics, have been a movie staple since the 20s. Traditionally, these have depicted the most of the subject's life, or at least a broad swath of it. In recent years biopics such as 42, Capote, Lincoln, Selma, Hitchcock, and the upcoming Marshall have instead examined a more limited period of time. Which type works better? What do we look for in an effective biopic?
