About Drama Movies

As a genre, drama encompasses just about every film that doesn’t fit into a more specific category. Dramas usually involve characters in conflict, either with other characters, with themselves or with an external obstacle or difficult situation. Just about the only requirement of a dramatic narrative is that the story’s situations aren’t played primarily for laughsâ€"although dramas can certainly have elements of comedy in them, and comedies can have dramatic elements, as well. Unlike action and adventure films, which value physical movement and uncomplicated plot progression, dramas tend to focus on character development and the emotional and intellectual struggles within and between characters.

The drama genre can be divided into a multitude of sub-genres based on the subject matter of the film. Romantic dramas concern themselves with the relationship between two people, family dramas explore the interactions among relatives, and historical dramas consider the lives of people in eras gone by. The constant in dramas is their interest in how people get along with one another, how they grapple with their emotions, and how they cope with conflicts in their lives. Dramas are centered around scenes of introspection and dialogue, and the action in dramas always supports the goal of allowing the viewer to get to know the characters.

Because dramas are so character-driven, they are beloved by actors who want the chance to show how they can inhabit the characters they portray, and top-notch dramatic performances tend to draw more critical acclaim than those in almost any other genre. Many of the most respected American actorsâ€"Meryl Streep, Dustin Hoffman, Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, etc.â€"did their most well-known and highly praised work in dramatic roles. In general, dramas are taken more seriously as an artistic genre than are comedies, action movies, musicals or other more light-hearted types of film, and some award-granting organizations go as far as to segregate dramas and comedies into separate categories.
