Not a genre encompasses as much as the ‘drama film’, in that sense we consider it more to a genre that sets it self apart by not really adhering to any other genre. Although an impossible task, we managed to put together this list of great films, of which we have chosen mainly American indie drama movies. Movies made outside of the studios, or with an independent spirt.
