As Described, The Terms of adaptation and understanding from Memoir to Biography are often interchanged and can blur the line between what a Film Script can represent.
A memoir is a sub-genre of the autobiography. As Wikipedia writes:
A memoir (from French: mémoire/ Latin: memoria, meaning memory, or reminiscence), is a literary genre, forming a subclass of autobiography – although the terms 'memoir' and 'autobiography' are almost interchangeable.The criteria for determining whether a work is a memoir include:
A biography, on the other hand, is a broader category. From Wikipedia:
- They tend to encompass only time period of the author's life
- They tend to deal with one part of the author's life--say, his career
- They are generally written in first-person
A biography is a detailed description or account of someone's life. More than a list of basic facts (education, work, relationships, and death), biography also portrays the subject's experience of those events. Unlike a profile or curriculum vitae (résumé), a biography presents the subject's life story, highlighting various aspects of his or her life, including intimate details of experience, and may include an analysis of the subject's personality.Biographies tend to be about someone's entire life, although a memoir is still a type of biography. The library would shelve them together because of their shared overarching category.
A biographical film, or biopic (//; abbreviation for biographical motion picture), is a film that dramatizes the life of an actual person or people. Such films show the life of a historical person and the central character’s real name is used. They differ from films "based on a true story" or “historical films” in that they attempt to comprehensively tell a person’s life story or at least the most historically important years of their lives.
