Showdown

Sense and Sensibility

Best period films

Add a list or tag with showdown:period

Powder your wigs and button your doublets, it’s Showdownton Abbey time. We’re celebrating period films: historical dramas, Victorian chamber comedies, Shakespearean romps, E.M. Forster quip-fests, handmaidens’ tales and cinematic journeys to Austenland. Think immersive, transportive films in which the art, costume and makeup departments really earned their keep. This far into the 21st century, what even is period, anymore? For the purposes of this Showdown, we’ll accept any film set on Earth during WWII or earlier (sorry, Carol).
