Trivia

Montrose's line bemoaning the Queen's lack of an heir is a reference to her seventeen pregnancies, which resulted in six miscarriages, six stillbirths, two children who lived only a few minutes after birth, a daughter who didn't see her first birthday, another who didn't see her second, and a son, William, Duke of Gloucester, who died a few days after turning eleven, two years before Anne's ascension to the throne.

Quotes

[first lines]
Title Card: At the dawn of the 1700's, famine, disease and the greed of great Noblemen were changing Scotland forever. With many emigrating to the Americas, the centuries-old Clan system was slowly being extinguished. This story symbolises the attempt of the individual to withstand these processes and, even in defeat, retain respect and honour.

Alternate Versions

Three seconds were cut from the UK cinema version to receive a 15 certificate, with a further 21 seconds removed from the video version. All the cuts were made to edit the rape scene. This version was released on DVD all over Europe as MGM mastered only one DVD for the entire region. In 2012, all previous cuts were waived by the BBFC for the 15 certificate Blu-ray release.

An unforgettable epic of love and honor.
25 March 2000 | by coop-16See all my reviews

What can one say about a film that has one of the blackest, most nihilistic, and occasionally most weirdly -I wont say 'sympathetic'..I will say 'charismatic' villains in the history of the Cinema, and the best sword fight since Flynn and Fairbanks were in their heyday? This is an epic about a stubborn, sometimes foolish, incredibly courageous and honest mans fight for his honor and freedom against tyranny. I loved it. John Hurt and Tim Roth were great villains. Jessica Lange was very moving, tender, and sensual.
