There are several accurate and highly regarded movies that portray World War I, the Roaring Twenties, and the Great Depression. Here are some notable films for each period.

1917 (2019): A visually stunning film that offers a realistic portrayal of the trenches and challenges soldiers faced during World War I.

Paths of Glory (1957): Directed by Stanley Kubrick, this film explores the moral and political consequences of trench warfare.

War Horse (2011): Based on a novel by Michael Morpurgo, this film tells the story of a horse's journey through the war and the impact on the people he encounters.

The Great Gatsby (2013): Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's iconic novel, this film captures the opulence and excess of the Roaring Twenties.

Midnight in Paris (2011): Although not set entirely in the 1920s, this Woody Allen film captures the allure of the era and its famous literary figures.

The Artist (2011): This silent black-and-white film beautifully captures the transition from silent films to talkies during the late 1920s.

The Grapes of Wrath (1940): Based on John Steinbeck's novel, this film portrays the struggles of a family during the Great Depression.

Cinderella Man (2005): Starring Russell Crowe, this film tells the true story of a boxer during the Great Depression and his fight for survival.

However, it's important to remember that while they may provide accurate depictions of certain aspects, they are still works of fiction and may take creative liberties for storytelling purposes.
