The argument/thesis here is simple, “this movie is an accurate representation of the time it portrays because…” or “this movie is not an accurate representation of the time it portrays because…” In my example paper on Hamilton, I focused heavily on characterization and portrayal of events because it was a play, but in your papers you can focus on those themes as well as costumes, sets, language, portrayal, etc.
