'Braveheart' (1995) by Mel Gibson. It's very difficult not to get lost in this patriotic epic. In 1300, Sir William Wallace unites the Scottish clans to battle the English. All in the name of his wife, and the love of his country. Although I knew the quotes, and knew the music so well, it occurred to me that I'd never sat to watch the whole 3 hour journey. History Hollywoodised in true Mel Gibson fashion. Enjoy the battle scenes, appreciate the message. Freedom!
