Mississippi Made
27 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Historian is a true, in depth look into the world of academia as we know it. Doleac did a fantastic job of showing the struggle between collegiate students and their professors, and how some in the collegiate world are more worried about money than education. There are some institutions today that are more worried about university income rather than worrying about what is being actually being learned by students. Also a humorous and detailed inside look on how some professors might see the current world they live in. Beautiful and painful stories, beautiful locations, and great performances from Sadler, Doleac, Cullum, Jimenez and Cunningham make 'The Historian' a great watch.
