From Back Cover:
"TWO ENTHUSIASTIC THUMBS WAY UP!"
-"Siskel & Ebert"
Academy Award nominee Liam Neeson and Academy Award winner Jessica Lange give extraordinary performances as the legendary hero who refused to let his enemies destroy is honor and the loyal woman who gave him the courage to fight. Boasting "the best direction, acting, writing and sequences in movie history" (Roger Ebert), Rob Roy is a thrilling, powerful adventure and "one of the best films of the year!" (Gene Siskel)
When a harsh winter threatens the majestic Scottish Highlands, Rob Roy MacGregor (Neeson) is forced to borrow money from the less-than-noble Marquis of Montrose (John Hurt) to provide for his clan. But when Montrose's henchman (Tim Roth in an Oscar nominated performance) conspires to take the wealth for himself, Rob is thrust into the most challenging battle of his life...one that escalates into an exhilarating climax that will captivate you to the film's final frame.
A good film about loyalty, bravery and love.
Rated R (MPAA)
