Mr. Wilkinson’s Historical Film Recommendations

(The appearance of a film on this list does not mean that I agree with its message or content, or even like it.  It might even be historically inaccurate.  But it is a well-made film about a topic from our course that will help you develop a better understanding of why people care about history).

Les Miserables
