BRAVEHEART by Anthea Slade
BRAVEHEART follows the legendary story of Sir William Wallace, a Scottish Highlander who rallies the Clans against the tyrannical King Edward I – Edward Long Shanks. After the brutal slaying of his young bride by the occupying English, Wallace seeks revenge. Starving and outnumbered, the patriots of Scotland unite to form an army of warriors and capture the spirit of freedom, for Scotland, forever.
Mel Gibson stars as William Wallace and gives a powerful, sensitive and captivating performance of the courageous Wallace. He gives one of the most inspiring speeches on freedom I have ever heard or seen. A great leader in word and in action.
Freedom Speech spoken by William Wallace (Mel Gibson) in BRAVEHEART
“I am William Wallace. And I see a whole army of my countrymen,here in defiance of tyranny! You have come to fight as free men. And free man you are! What will you do without freedom? Will you fight?” “Two thousand against ten?” – the veteran shouted. “No! We will run – and live!”“Yes!” Wallace shouted back. “Fight and you may die. Run and you will live at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here as young men and tell our enemies that they may take our lives but they will never take our freedom!”
