Product Description


"[Docudramas] have not received the close scholarly attention accorded fiction films and documentaries. This book, therefore, fills a gap in the scholarly literature. It fully explicates the ethical and aesthetic implications of the tag 'based on a true story' . . . . and does so in prose that makes for a compelling read. The analyses of "Schindler's List, Quiz Show, " and "JFK" are especially insightful."--Stephen Prince, Virginia Polytechnic Institute
