Angus Macfadyen (Equilibrium) portrays Scottish warrior-king Robert The Bruce in the action-filled historical drama unsurprisingly titled Robert The Bruce.

In 1306, Robert the Bruce, a member of the nobility who failed to support William Wallace’s rebellion at a critical time, crowns himself King and takes the cause of Scotland’s freedom as his own. But he cannot overcome England’s power. Defeated again and again, his army scatters, Scotland’s nobility abandons him, and The King of England places a price on his head. He finds himself alone, wounded and hunted by the very soldiers he once led. But after he meets a handful a group of people that nurses him back to health, Robert—with the aid of his new family—sets out to claim the long-awaited freedom of Scotland.

Directed by Richard Gray, co-starring Anna Hutchison (The Cabin in the Woods) and Jared Harris (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) and gloriously shot in widescreen for maximum impact, the Blu-ray and DVD incarnations of the film include an audio commentary with MacFadyen and Gray and a making-of featurette.

The tale not only coincides with the 700th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath, when The Bruce declared Scotland a free land, but also on the 25th anniversary of Braveheart, from which Robert The Bruce picks up the historical timeline. Angus Macfadyen portrays Robert the Bruce in both films.
