The Most Historically Accurate Hollywood Films

Realistic 1800s Ships

Before this film, the screen had never seen such accurate colonial costumes or ships in a film before. The naval battle scenes are nearly exactly how author Patrick O'Brian described them in the novel the film is based on. The sea captain uniforms are so precise and accurate, you'll feel like you're back in the 1800s while you're watching this film from 2003.
