Screen Media announces Robert The Bruce on Blu-ray and DVD
In 1995 Mel Gibson took on double duty in front and behind the camera for the award winning film Braveheart also starring Angus Macfadyen. Now Macfadyen is returning to the role for the film Robert The Bruce that picks up in the historical timeline Braveheart.
Robert The Bruce follows Robert the Bruce, a member of the nobility who failed to support William Wallace’s rebellion at a critical time who crowns himself King and takes the cause of Scotland’s freedom as his own. But he cannot overcome England’s power. Defeated again and again, his army scatters, Scotland’s nobility abandons him, and The King of England places a price on his head. He finds himself alone, wounded and hunted by the very soldiers he once led. But when he is discovered by a precocious eleven-year-old whose father died fighting alongside him, both his life and Scotland’s history are changed forever. This boy, his mother, and two orphans who share a small croft save the Bruce’s life and nurse him back to health. He becomes a part of their unique family – and they become the first soldiers in his new army - as he sets out to claim the long-awaited freedom of Scotland.
Return to the war for Scotland’s freedom when Robert the Bruce hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 2 from Screen Media.
