From the Austen adaptations of the ‘90s to queer love stories of the late 2010s, period dramas have always held a special place in audience’s hearts and on their screens. Many accomplished filmmakers and actors have put their own stamp on beloved source material, while others have crafted historical fictions. Whether they lean classic or contemporary, comedy or straight-laced drama, all of these works share a love for witty banter, elaborate costumes and of course, the marriage plot.
