Frances Foster Jenkins was a pretty terrific biopic. By the end of the film, you understood each character's motivations and you had respect for a woman who could not sing, but did. You knew enough about her life to fill in any gaps.
What are your favorite biopics? What movie got it right?
HUNGER, Roxane Gay THE MARSH KING'S DAUGHTER, Karen Dionne LOVING DAY, Mat Johnson
