Histatic Films!

Nicole Kidman is set to star in an upcoming film called 'The Eight Wonder' about an amazing archaeological find. Hopefully, this will be another example of a great Hollywood film that makes History and Archaeology fun for us all!
I am a huge fan of films that are set in a historical context. I recently went to see 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor', which, although not being entirely based on historical fact, made for excellent viewing!
One of my favourite historical films has got to be Marc Rothemund's 'Sophie Scholl', which is a German film about the 'White Rose Movement' activist Sophie Scholl, whose views on the Nazi government during World War Two resulted in her execution in 1943. There are many other great historical films that I love but do not have time to mention!

What is your favourite historical film?
