The Best Period Films
To prepare for the Pillars of the Earth premiere, take a look at our favorite films that transport us back in time. 
Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice
It's a daring endeavor to take on a classic, especially one that's been subject to a number of adaptations—including a beloved six-hour television miniseries—but the 2005 Jane Austen remake starring Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennett and Matthew Macfadyen as Mr. Darcy got it just right. After just a few scenes, moviegoers will be wishing they could attend turn-of-the-century balls and visit the stunning English countryside. It's a live-action version of the romance we've always envisioned—complete with an extra final scene depicting Elizabeth and Darcy as we hoped they'd turn out: in love, married, blissful.
