The Patriot Movie - a 2000 historical action drama starring Mel Gibson, Heath Ledger and Joely Richardson. It tells the story of a peaceful farmer, Benjamin Martin, who is driven to lead the Colonial Militia during the American Revolution when a sadistic British officer murders his son. Incredible Cinematography! (PG-15)
The Patriot (2000) I consider this to be one of Mel Gibson's most moving performances. A definite must watch if you love history, war movies, or drama. The story of a man's struggle to protect his family during the dangerous time of the Civil War, and fulfill duty to his fellow countrymen at the same time.
