I don't know what people consider biopics.  Battle of the Sexes was about both Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King. I didn't buy Emma Stone as BJK but thought Steve C. did a good job.

Harriet, which I'll be able to watch on HBO, is about Harriet Tubman

I think there may have been a film about Edith Piaf.

There was also a biopic about Elton John that came out this past year.

Warren Beatty played Howard Hughes, but only as an ancillary character (and thought he did a better job than Leo, probably not as good as Jason Robards Jr. in Melvin and Howard).

If you went back several more years, I thought Robert Downey Jr. made an excellent Chaplin.

(Tom Hanks' newest movie GREYHOUND is based on a real WWII event but since I haven't seen it yet I'm not sure if it's a "biopic"--anyone seen it?)

I think Paul Newman summed up prohibition best in THE STING: “The fix was in, **** took their end without a beef-- we had it down to a business. And it really stunk, kid. There’s no sense being a grifter if it’s the same as being a citizen.”
