About This Quiz

There are a million different ways history has found its way to the silver screen- from period dramas that only use a particular time or place as a backdrop, all the way to meticulously crafted documentaries aimed at piecing together every aspect of a historical figure's life. No matter how it's done, though, one thing is clear: we love them! This shouldn't come as a surprise, really. Movies are stories, and there are no stories grander, more full of life, or more relevant than the stories taken out of the pages of human history. In these stories, we see ourselves at our very best and our most monstrous, we see the most honorable heroes and the most despicable villains, not as fanciful tales to amuse, but rather as concrete lessons to be learned. 


In making a historical film, then, the director is putting one small part of the biggest story of them all on the screen: the human story. Here we see the fates of nations and the destinies of entire peoples put to the test, and this naturally creates a drama no fiction could possibly equal.
