There are several colorful celebrity biopics coming our way this fall/winter, and some are based on memoirs such as "Can You Ever Forgive Me" based on the memoir of disgraced celebrity biographer Lee Israel, played my Melissa McCarthy. Other provocative films include "Colette" starring Keira Knightley as the celebrated French novelist; "The Favorite" about the palace intrigue of Britain's early 18th century monarch Queen Anne, starring Rachel Weisz and Olivia Coleman; the documentary "Love Gilda", about the late comedienne Gilda Radner; "Becoming Astrid" about famed Swedish children's author Astrid Lindgren and "Mary Queen of Scots" starring Margot Robbie.

These are all on my watch list. Let us know if any are on yours and as always reviews are welcome.

I'm excited about the biopic Stan & Ollie which is opening in wide release Jan 25. This is, of course, about the iconic comedy team Laurel and Hardy. We get to see a lot of personal, behind the scenes stuff and find out about their friendship/professional relationship. John C, Reilly plays Oliver Hardy and Steve Coogan is Stan Laurel, Could the casting be better? Please share your thoughts, and reviews.

There are two exciting celebrity biopics premiering in theaters later this year, focusing on iconic recording artists. Rocketman, which explores the prime of Elton John's career, hits theaters on May 31, See the trailer

In September we will see the talented and versatile Renee Zellwegger taken on the challenging role of troubled diva Judy Garland, during the actress/singer's series of sold out concerts in London shortly before her untimely death. Based on the stage play "End of the Rainbow" this one should be interesting at the very least.
