Biopics: From Jesus and Shakespeare to McDonald's

Biopics: From Jesus and Shakespeare to McDonald's

We would have thought that the name McDonald's once stood for best food and highest hygienic standards. For simple but high quality American cuisine. The brothers Mac (John Carroll Lynch) and Dick McDonald (Nick Offerman) had developed a system in the 1950s that allowed them to serve an order in their diner instead of 30 minutes in 30 seconds and thus became the hippest restaurant in the city . It was a thorn in the eyes of the whole chain, because they feared that they could no longer meet the high, self-imposed standards. 

There had to be a deducted representative for milkshake mixers who came to the head, the brilliant concept to market.

Informative and entertaining
Biopics is an ideal opportunity to broaden its horizons - and, like in the case of "The Founder", which will be released on April 20, 2017, will be brilliantly entertained. Biopics are especially good at presenting historical materials in a timely and timely manner. For example, the life of probably the most famous author in the world, William Shakespeare. "Shakespeare in Love" is an opulent historiendrama with death. Gwyneth Paltrow, Joseph Fiennes, Judith Dench, and Ben Affleck are just some of the great names that director John Madden is facing. The ZDF shows the film on the night of Friday, April 14, 2017, on Saturday at 1:25. Three months for free!

The multitude of bibliographies, which are once again high on the eve of Easter, are among the biopics. One of the most controversial ones, Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ," runs on Tele 5 at 10 pm on Good Friday.

Nothing but the truth?
Mel Gibson's film adaptation of the life story of Jesus - in this case rather the story of his death - makes clear that biopics often reflect the very subjective view of the director. Another example of this is Oliver Stone, who is always staging his truth in films like "The Doors" or "JFK - Tatort Dallas". His main characters, the charismatic singer Jim Morrison (Val Kilmer) and the law-abiding prosecutor Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner), are film heroes - and as such, more tragic and heroic than reality. Stone's cinema is "bigger than life," even if he filmed the life stories of real-life characters.

Oscarreife Performances
For actors, Biopics often have the greatest roles in their careers. Ben Kingsley won the Oscar in 1983 as the best actor for his embodiment of Mahatma Gandhi in Richard Attenborough's film, Jamie Foxx in 2005 for his role as soul legend Ray Charles. "The Founder" - which has been seen in the US since January - went blank for the Oscars 2017 . Michael Keaton would have earned a nomination for his Ray Kroc at least. And Nick Offerman also plays Dick McDonald great: grounded, but also creative, as idealistic as pedantic, strict in the kitchen, but passionate about the matter - someone who would like to eat a burger.
