What is a Period Piece?

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”.
