Synopsis


Rob Roy
The 18th century Scottish legend of Robert Roy MacGregor comes to life in this stylish adaptation of the swashbuckling novel by Sir Walter Scott. Liam Neeson stars as the title character, a cattle drover and proud head of a Highlands clan who takes a one thousand pound loan from the royal Marquis of Montrose (John Hurt) in order to make a profit on some livestock that will keep his struggling people alive through the coming winter. One of the Marquis' henchmen, wily expert swordsman Archibald Cunningham (Tim Roth) learns of the loan from the nobleman's factor, Killearn (Brian Cox), and steals the money by murdering Rob Roy's best friend MacDonald (Eric Stoltz). Unable to repay the loan and unwilling to give up his land, Rob Roy becomes a fugitive, hunted by none other than Cunningham, who rapes Rob Roy's wife Mary (Jessica Lange). Scottish-English politics come to a boil over the Rob Roy affair, leading to an officially sanctioned showdown between the stoic farmer and Cunningham. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    Rob Roy was a well done movie with an excellent cast and script. The swordfighting scene at the end was a classic and a must see. About a poor landowner who puts honor above everything else and how politics manipulates him and his family. Liam Neesson was fantastic and one of his BEST works. Highly recommend it.

    This is in my personal top 10 of all time. A window into the Highlands of long ago when honor, romance and good sword play were how one lived. The cast could not be better chosen..Excellent and well done. Wonderful, amazing movie that I will watch again and again.
