Best 5 Movies Based on True Stories of All Time
1. The Imitation Game
The Imitation Game tells the life of Alan Turing, a cryptanalyst and mathematician. The film charts how Alan Turing’s invention (a decipher the machine) helped shortened the war in Europe and saved over 14 million lives. But, tragically, he was persecuted by his country for his homosexual act in 1952.
2. The 33
The 33 shares the story of a disaster-survival event that happened in Copiapó, Chile. The San José mine collapsed in 2010, where thirty-three miners were in the rescue chamber with minimal food resource, empty medical kit, and no means of communication to the surface. Nevertheless, they were trapped 700 meters underground and were successfully rescued after 70 days. It was a grand miracle that all 33 men survived.
3. Hidden Figures
This biographical film speaks about the vital—and previously unsung—the role of African American female mathematicians who worked at NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). Back in the 1960s, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson fought through widespread, systematic discrimination as human computers at NASA during the Space Race. Their efforts and contribution paid off; eventually, they earned the respects and recognition they deserved.
4. Green Book
This movie is named after The Negro Motorist Green Book ( a mid-20th century guidebook for African-American travellers written by Victor Hugo Green). It’s a biographical comedy film inspired by the unlikely friendship between an African American classical and jazz pianist Don Shirley and his bodyguard cum driver, an Italian American bouncer named Frank “Tony Lip” Vallelonga. The film shows how the unlikely pair gets together and how their friendship blossoms through a Midwest and Deep South America tour.
5. A United Kingdom
This 1940s love story is about the real-life romance between the Prince of Botswana, Seretse Khama, and a white English office worker named Ruth Williams. The duo faced disapproval from their family members and both the British and South African governments for their forbidden interracial relationship. Nevertheless, they fought against all odds and settled down as a family in Botswana.
