Braveheart is the story of William Wallace, and how he leads Scotland to freedom.

MY FAVORITE MOVIE EVER

Braveheart is my favorite movie of all time, and has been so for almost sixteen years now.  No other movie has even flirted with first place in my book. I remember seeing this movie in the theater. I remember how intense it was to watch it on the big screen. I laughed, I winced, I cried, I pondered it for days. I went back and saw it again. And still, many years later, after seeing it at least a couple dozen more times, it has the same effect on me. I am awestruck at how powerful this movie is.

The movie begins when Wallace was a young boy and his father was killed by the English. It tells the story of why he chose to fight. It takes you through several battles.
