Lafayette: The Lost Hero
The title refers to Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette, a French aristocrat who lived from 1757 to 1834; as helmed by Oren Jacoby, this biographical documentary tells of the Marquis's life and times. A controversial figure (and one commonly overlooked by historians), Lafayette left home before his 20th birthday to fight for the independence of the then-fledgling United States; later, in the 1780s, Lafayette returned to France and courageously struggled for democratic reform. The strength of his convictions and the success of his actions eventually helped him glean heroic stature among his fellow Frenchmen. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    Good insight into the man and his place in history


    George Washington may have been commander in chief and our 1st president, but Lafayette was the Rock Star of the Revolution! Although 60 minutes cant come close to covering this man's life, this documentary does do him professional and personal justice. I've always been a fan of Lafayette since boyhood and this biop will help current and future generations understand his value in history. He was a significant contributor to us winning our Revolution and to France's Revolution later on!
