A historist would celebrate the movie Saving Private Ryan by Robert Rodat.
One reason a historist would celebrate Saving Private Ryan because this movie shows how war is hell, and what it can do to a man. Even though it may not be for a younger person, there is a lot of swearing because war is a place where no one wants to go. It is a great example of historicism because it really focuses on the story's setting.
Another reason a historist would celebrate Saving Private Ryan is because the setting of the movie is just like the setting of real war and what happened back then. This movie shows great historicism because it emphasized the importance of history and it was based on a true historical event. The movie was about a battalion who go to rescue Pvt. Ryan after all his brother were killed in action during the Allied invasion of Norway on June 6th, 1944.
In conclusion, this is why a historist would celebrate the movie Saving Private Ryan because the movie showed how war can effect someone. The movie also showed what happened on that day and it was based on a true historical event during World War II.
