The movie Braveheart was directed by Mel Gibson and it stars Mel Gibson as well. Mel plays a charcter named William Wallace who lives in Scotland during the reign of Edward I of England. An English lord kills his wife whom he had just married, and he then sets out for revenge against England. His vendetta leads to a Scottish uprising that ultimately turns into them wanting their freedom from the English. The movie is epic from the start to the finish and is one of my all time favorites. The movie currently has a rating of 76% on RottenTomatoes and I hope you enjoy the film.
