Movies by Era: The Renaissance and Elizabethan Eras

From the beginning of film, movie makers have created fanciful stories set in faraway lands and in times long past. Watching a good period film, old or new, is perhaps one of the most enjoyable ways to spend an evening. We have provided an extensive list of films set in the the era about which you are interested in learning. In addition, our "Featured Films" provides summaries, interesting behind the scenes facts, and photo galleries.
