Let's talk historical films

Let's start a new thread on historical British films. Which are your favorites?

My top is Master and Commander

I'm also quite fond of the 2005 Pride & Prejudice.

I hesitate to put Empire of the Sun on the list - while it's about a British character and one of my favorite films, it's a Hollywood production.


  • I have a soft spot for Elizabeth (1998) with Cate Blanchett in the lead role. Also the sequel - when I saw that in Leicester Square the Odeon also trotted out the old organ for a spin.

    The Draughtsman's Contract springs to mind as well.
