Best New Historical Romance Movies

Ophelia (2019) PG-13

Wow, if you love historical movies, this one is beautiful. The costumes, hair, and setting are luscious. It is based on a Shakespeare tragedy, so don’t get your hopes up for a happy ending, but it’s so worth it. The ending was too graphic with the violence for me (I tend to look away), but the rest is smooth sailing. I give it a thumbs up.

Tolkien (2019) PG-13

Oh my goodness. I absolutely loved this movie. It’s the origin story of J.R.R. Tolkien. You might know him as the author of the Lord of the Rings. It was so incredibly fascinating, especially how it delved into the origin of Tolkien’s ideas for the Lord of the Rings. It goes through the love of a lifetime romance with his true elvin princess. Suffering really does lend to fantastic writing, the silver lining of the darkness he had to face.
