POLL - Period Movies of 2009


Which of these period dramas from the past year have you seen? (poll below)


Which ones would you like to see??
If you're like me, I'm waiting for the chance to see a lot of these films!

As we approach the end of 2009, I was surprised to see how many period films made their debut this year. Many of them are smaller films or made-for-tv so they're not as well known. And some have only debuted in December so many of us haven't yet had the chance to catch them!

  1. I'm waiting for Bright Star, Coco Avant Chanel, Me and Orson Welles and The Young Victoria to come out on dvd, and Emma to be on Masterpiece.

  3. There are only two here that I have seen, Little Dorrit I have on DVD and living in the USA I'm not even supposed to have seen Emma yet (not shown here until February). There's also a lot here that I'd really like to see. That list would include: Amelia, Bright Star, The Courageous Heart of Irena Adler, Cranford 2 (soon! yay!), From Time to Time, Julie & Julia, Public Enemies (gave my brother this for Christmas), Sherlock Holmes, Wuthering Heights and The Young Victoria (can't wait for that one!). Louisa May Alcott looks interesting and I've tried to watch Larkrise to Candleford but just couldn't get into the story, might have to try again. Several of these just haven't become available in my area yet. Lots to add to my 'to see' list! Thanks! :)

  4. I did notice that when I was making this list that there are a lot that we haven't had a chance to see yet! For anyone interested, fastpasstv.com is where I watched The Young Vic and Cranford2 is up on Youtube at the moment!

  5. I'm behind in my period film watching. I blame 'Little Dorrit' and 'Emma.' I spent a lot of time watching those over and over... :D

  6. Bless you for this list! I had NO idea I was missing so much wonderful period pieces! I have seen only a few of these and haven't even heard of many!
    I caught the Louisa May Alcott bio by chance the other night on TV and stayed up very late to watch it. I did know about it from your blog so I knew it was coming soon!
    Thanks so much for your wonderful blog. Keep up the great work and Happy New Year!

  9. In the next couple of months, I hope to be able to see the sequel to Cranford (having finally seen Cranford over the New Year holiday), Emma, Lark Rise..., Anne Frank, and Lousia May Alcott. I cannot wait to own Little Dorrit and Young Victoria.

  10. You are forgetting one of the newest movie (that's in the movie theater) "Leap Year" with Amy Adams
    You have my vote for that one

  11. Anon, this is just a sampling of period movies from 2009. 'Leap Year' wouldn't be considered a "period" film since it's set in current times. It is however, one that I'm hoping to see!

  12. There are many I haven't seen still. I just requested "Little Dorrit" from Netflix. What a wonderful blog this, I can get lost in here.

  14. Realised I've seen 19 of these - I'm lucky as I'm in the UK so a lot of them have been on TV, but there are lots more I still want to catch!

  15. Wow Judy, I think that you've seen the most of anyone I know so far! And I am envious of you having such great access to these films in the UK - glad you get to enjoy them!
