Thursday Movie Picks: Period Dramas

a weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves

I know I am going to repeat myself, again, but period dramas are not my cup of tea. I just find them tremendously boring, especially when they revolve around nothing but romance — yes, that's a sideswipe at Jane Austen. So, for this week's Thursday Movie Picks, for the first time (this year), I decided to pick period dramas that I haven't seen yet but that have been on my watchlist for a while now. 

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018)

I first heard of this on someone's TMP post, and it sounded so good I wanted to watch it. The problem? Every time I scroll through my watchlist on Netflix I stop at this but then move on and waste another 30 minutes to find something to watch. And often end up watching nothing. I swear that the next time I do that, I will watch it. 

The Illusionist (2006)

At some point in my teen years — easily 12-13 years ago —, I developed a crush on Edward Norton and set out to watch every single movie he was in. Then the crush kind of faded (?) and this film remained on my list ever since. 

The Other Boleyn Girl (2008)

This is easily the one that has been on my watchlist the longest as Natalie Portman was one of my first celebrity crushes. I don't know what it is about this movie though, but I just can't bring myself to watch it.
