If you are a history lover, then one of the best entertainment pleasures that you can have is a really great period drama. The costumes, the language, the accents, the grand stories ... it’s all heaven to someone who is obsessed with the past! However, it’s fair to say that there are a lot of stinkers out there! To stay on the right track, here are fifteen of the best movie costume dramas for history lovers.
1. The Favourite
Where better to start than with the film that produced 2019's Best Actress Oscar winner? Olivia Colman earned her award for playing England’s Queen Anne in this revolutionary period drama about love and loss. It’s as funny as it is historically compelling, and I really think it has changed period dramas forever!
