1. What period dramas did you view in March?
- I finally rented and watched Brooklyn, and I loved it! The costumes, the scenery, the Irish and Italian accents, all of it. I highly recommend it!
- Over spring break I watched the first two Horatio Hornblower movies (eeee!), and He Knew He was Right, which was really depressing and kind of a waste of time. :(
- Last week I saw The Sound of Music in German class, which brought back all sorts of nostalgia and warm fuzzies.
- And now my family is making our way through Camelot. Yeah...it's pretty cheesy, but kind of fun!

2. What is your favorite period drama soundtrack?
Ahh, don't ask this question; I have way too many favorites! I even wrote about it in one of my first posts: (cliquez here for the list!). If I had to choose a top three, they would be Little Women, Last of the Mohicans, and Copperhead. And the opening theme for John Adams. (I know, I know, that's kind of like four. But they're all so gooood!)

This seems like a job for Pinterest!
*20 minutes of searching later*
I think I found a nice one! (I love using Pinterest for time-traveling wardrobe purposes!)
Ooh, and who would I dance with? I think I'd split my time between Mr. Bingley and Mr. Tilney. :)
4. Do you prefer watching period dramas by yourself or with friends/family? Why?
I don't mind much either way. It sometimes depends on the movie. But until very recently I never had a friend who was interested in period drama, so if I watch those movies with anyone, it's probably my mother. :)
Well, I'm dying to see more Horatio Hornblower, and Naomi just did a fantastic post on Call the Midwife, so I'll probably start watching that too. :) As for movies, I'm still itching to watch them all, so I'm not going to make a list. :) But I am immensely looking forward to seeing Love and Friendship when it comes out!
