The Historian is special to me because it was filmed at my alma mater, never mind that I absolutely loved the film. It has all the qualities of a huge blockbuster, but more than that the film itself gives the audience a personal touch. Once you hit play, you instantly recognize snippets and snatches of people you know, and emotions that have been evoked when you've faced struggle in your own life. it's a solid film for those looking for a complex tale with subplots weaving in and out of the story. I am the type of viewer that loves to watch a movie multiple times, and catch little different details each time. This movie did not disappoint. I suggest not only renting the movie and enjoying it for yourself, but also owning a part of what will become Mississippi history.
