Hi, I thought it might be a good idea to collect some movies about scientists or research work. I don't mean science documentations, but acted movies. Of course we all know that the depictions are often inaccurate, but I think they can be fun to watch anyway Problem is that when I search the web for movies like the ones below I just come up with yet another "Frankensteinesque-mad-scientist-triggers-zombie-apocalypse" sort of action movie...this is not what I'm looking for, but rather "normal" films which prominently feature scientists/research.
I've got three to start with and hopefully you know some more
Life Story - a 1987 BBC movie on the discovery of the DNA structure:
The Quest - a short (30 min) 1958 movie on the discovery of Insulin by Banting and Best:
Hawking - a 2004 BBC movie about the life of Stephen Hawking:
