A period piece describes a motion picture that takes place in a past era. In other words, it takes place at a time far enough in the past where culture, customs, technology, fashion, speech & lifestyle are significantly different from the present. They can range as far back as prehistoric times like in 10,000 BC, medieval times like BRAVEHEART, or mid 20th century like SCHINDLER’S LIST or MAD MEN.
