Mel Gibson directs and stars in the Oscar-winning story of legendary 13th century Scottish warrior William Wallace, the patriotic rebel who led a ragged but courageous army against the English and their tyrannical king Edward Longshanks (Patrick McGoohan). Epic battles, swoonsome romance (with local lassie Catherine McCormack and, teasingly, French princess Sophie Marceau) and a bold interpretation of history make this an adventure for the ages. Won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Effects, Make-Up and Cinematography.
