One of my favorite things about Netflix is the large selection of period films available to watch. Since I first signed up for Netflix, I’ve watched several of my old favorites as well as found some new ones. Today I’m sharing four of my favorite period dramas on Netflix to give you some inspiration for you next movie night!
I absolutely adore this adaption of Jane Eyre. Jane Eyre has long been one of my favorite books, and for me, this film version captures the essence of the book. Plus the musical score is to die for.
Wives and Daughters
Wives and Daughters is a mini series based on Elizabeth Gaskell’s book of the same name. The series contains four episodes, and I often find myself putting them on in the background while I work on a sewing project. The story follows the life of Molly Gibson as she struggles to adjust to her father’s new marriage and the changes it brings to their family.
Call the Midwife
If I had to choose an absolute favorite TV series, Call the Midwife would win. Two seasons are currently available on Netflix, and I love them both. The show is based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, and follows her struggles as a midwife in London’s East End during the 1950s.
Sense and Sensibility
This version of Sense and Sensibility was one of my mom’s favorite movies growing up, and so I was practically raised on it. To this day I love it though, for its story, its soundtrack, and its absolute killer cast. Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, and Hugh Grant are notable cast members.
