The list author says: "Period dramas. Hearts flutter, women swoon, and men find out what it is to be a real Man. This is a list I've compiled of all the period dramas I know of. I've had to narrow it down to those made in the last 20 years (1980s-2000s), although I am aware that there are quite a few older than that. If I've missed anything (which is more than likely) I'm terribly sorry. I'm always adding more, so keep coming back for updates! Also, when it comes to Masterpiece Theater, I've only kept the best of the best on my period dramas lists. I have another set of lists just for Masterpiece Theater. So whatever Masterpiece Theater dvd is on this list, I probably have very strong feelings (love, loathe) about it!
**ALSO** I've decided to only have Period Dramas from Great Britain/Europe featured on this list. I may make up a list for American Period Dramas, but the British ones are more fascinating :]"
"I really loved Edward Norton in this movie. The scenery is to die for and Norton and Watts are perfect for this. Based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham Rated PG-13 - 2007 Naomi Watts, Edward Norton, Liev Schreiber, Toby Jones, Diana Rigg 1920s mostly China"
"Ok. Captain Wentworth is a total babe and makes this movie fun to watch, although the Musgroves are a riot as well. Anne is awkward, especially at the end. WHAT is going on with that first kiss?! Based on the novel by Jane Austen. Unrated - 2007 Sally Hawkins, Rupert Penry-Jones, Anthony Head, Alice Krige, Marion Bailey, Peter Wight"
"Love Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman, BUT this was one of the creepist and strangest movies I have ever seen. Rated PG-13 - 2006 Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Piper Perabo, Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson, David Bowie late 19th-early 20th century"
