Yes, it's Braveheart... Mel Gibson's punishingly long, actual national politics-affecting(!?), and inexplicably Oscar-festooned 1995 Hollywood "historical" "epic" about a fictional Scottish peasant/superhero/christ who, rather oddly, shares a name with a well-loved figure from Scotland's real history.
|Mr Gibson, um, "acting".|
So, my bonnie lads and lassies, get your kilts on, eat your haggis-flavoured shortbread, and paint your faces blue. Because it's time to listen to the wee Wrong With Authority bairns get medieval on Braveheart's ass. (Actually one of us rather likes it and another of us is "meh".)
