25 Movies Capturing America’s Rich History

Fandango recently surveyed more than a thousand film fans in preparation for the July 4 weekend.

The question: which movies best captured a time in America’s rich past?

The results included the usual suspects – historical dramas – as well as action romps tied to the nation’s most powerful chapters. Other movies recalled times that challenged the principles upon which the country was founded.

And one film is best known for its inventive, and dubious, interpretation of a political assassination.

Thank you, Mr. Stone.
