ROBERT THE BRUCE (2019)
Director: Richard Gray
Stars: Zach McGowan, Emma Kenney, Jared Harris
Robert the Bruce was the successor to William Wallace in leading Scotland in its Wars Of Independence in the late 13th & early 14th Centuries. After Wallace's execution in 1305, Bruce led Scotland to independence at the battle of Bannockburn, 23rd & 25th June 1314. Bruce was a very shrewd figure, dealing weaponry to the English Army as well as a few favours for the Scots, remaining- on the face of it- impartial. It was a tactical move in order that he could seize power, figuratively unseen.
