Review

Our Score
Director Graham Holloway works wonders with a tiny budget for this Scottish labour of love, a gritty period piece about the events leading up to the ill-fated Battle of Culloden. The story focuses on a proud Highland family who unwittingly get drawn into - and are divided by - the Jacobite rebellion against the hated English. Money considerations means it doesn't have the epic sweep that is needed, but the talented cast (including Iain Cuthbertson, Brian Blessed and former Marillion singer Fish) more than make up for any budget deficiencies.

Summary

An 18th-century Scottish family gets caught up in Charles Stuart's campaign to reclaim the British throne for his own house. The resulting conflict divides a father and his son, who end up fighting on opposing sides as the rebellion heads toward the final battle. Historical drama, starring Brian Blessed and Iain Cuthbertson.
