Movies: Historical epics

After a summer full of fluff, it's great to dig in to some dark, meaty dramas. And historical costume dramas are boeuf bourguignon of the movie-watchers diet. Three stand out this fall: "Lincoln," with Daniel Day Lewis eerily channeling our 16th president; "Anna Karnenina," starring Keira Knightley as the tragic, fabulously-dressed heroine; and "Hyde Park on the Hudson," starring Bill Murray as FDR.
