‘Drama’ Screenplays

One of the ‘Primary Genres.’

There are 13 ‘Primary Genres’ we’re all familiar with. Here’s one of them, explained.

The drama genre features stories with high stakes and many conflicts. They’re plot-driven and demand that every character and scene move the story forward. Dramas follow a clearly defined narrative plot structure, portraying real-life scenarios or extreme situations with emotionally-driven characters. Films that fall into drama sub-genres include historical drama or costume drama, romantic drama, teen drama, medical drama, docudrama, film noir, and neo-noir.


Citizen Kane (1941), The Godfather (1972), and The Social Network (2010) are examples of the dramatic genre.
