Ron Roy borrows some money from a local nobleman with the aim of improving his small town. When the money is stolen he is forced to live as an outlaw to protect his family.
The thinking person's Braveheart. Liam Neeson is the kilted 18th-century outlaw, Jessica Lange his loyal ginger missus, and Tim Roth the contemptible English bastard in a wig, in an outdoors tale of swordsmanship and nationalism. Completely overshadowed on its release by the B-film, but still worth a look.
Released: 01 February 2000
Trailer, plus what's flagged on the box as a revealing look at the making of the film - but turns out to exist only in the little booklet and not on the DVD. You've been Robbed.
Braveheart in a new kilt. Not exactly original, then, but worth a look.
