To name a work is a delicate art: it has to capture the essence of the work ([[WordSaladTitle at least most of the times]]) and do justice to the content. With {{biopic}}s and other biographical works, this is slightly trickier since a real person's life rarely follows a particular, simplistic theme that eases the process of naming.

->'''Creator/WilliamShakespeare''': I could name [this play] after its main character, ''[[Theatre/TimonOfAthens Timon]]'', but it feels rather dull.
->'''Widge''': You named ''{{Theatre/Hamlet}}'' after its main character.
->'''Shakespeare''': Well, this is not ''Hamlet''. More's the pity.
