period drama

Why isn't /insert title/ here?
Probably because the film's wardrobe is too contemporary for me to match the label of a period drama. Movies where the plot is set before c. 1920. I don't include later decades in my list because if corsets were not commonly worn at the time when the movie is supposed to be taking place, it doesn't feel like a period drama to me.

Otherwise, I'm open to suggestions!!
