Braveheart (1995, Mel Gibson, Catherine McCormack)



Mel Gibson directs and stars in this Oscar-laden epic as William Wallace, the medieval Scottish patriot spurred into revolt against the English when the love of his life (Catherine McCormack) is slaughtered. Leading his army into battles that become a war, his advance into England threatens King Edward I’s throne before he is captured and executed, but not before becoming a symbol for a free Scotland. The mix of court intrigue, tender love scenes and stirring battles never flags and Gibson rightly took the Oscar for best picture.
