Ren themed movies
« on: March 14, 2010, 06:27:12 AM »
So I'm looking for ren themed movies to get my faire fix-specifically during the Elizabethan era but anything from the reign of Henry VIII, Edward VI or Mary I would be ok too. List any you can think of &/or your faves. Thanks in advance! :) Oh I already have the Elizabeth movies starring Cate Blanchett & Helen Mirren as well as Shakespere In Love so any others besides those I guess...

Why be mundane when you can be a Rennie?!

Ever After takes place in the french court. It's my absolute favorite.
There is also The Other Boleyn Girl which is based on Phillipa Gregory's novel (good book)

here are a couple of links that list renaissance/medieval/period films

http://www.erasofelegance.com/entertainment/renaissancemovies.html

http://mrffriends.tripod.com/pages_other/movie.html

just google renaissance movies and you will find a bunch of hits.

as for 'period' films, and a costuming fix try

The Duchess (Kiera Knightley did well in this and i love the costuming)
Pride and Prejudice (anything Jane Austen really)
Tristan and Isolde (i cry every time lol)
Restoration (Robert Downey Jr did a pretty good job in this and the costuming is fun)
The Libertine (Johnny Depp)
Dangerous Beauty (Robin Wright Penn-this is about Venetian courtesans)
Moll Flanders (Robin Wright Penn)
 :)

I hate Mark Lester but LOVE Charlton Heston as Bluff King Hal in Richard Fleischer 's 1977 'Crossed Swords' (or 'Prince and the Pauper')
