“Robert the Bruce”

Directed by Richie Gray
Starring: Angus MacFadyen, Anna Hutchison, Jared Harris
Q&A with Director Richie Gray, Lead – Angus MacFadyen, Supporting Anna Hutchison

King Robert the Bruce is injured and on the run from the English army. On the brink of defeat, a widow and her family nurse him back to health and join The Bruce as he sets out to claim the long-awaited freedom of Scotland.

This extraordinary film is directed by the talented Richie Gray. The film stars Angus MacFadyen whose portrayal of Bruce is imbedded in our minds as a younger Robert from the film Braveheart. MacFadyen’s portrayal stirs up Robert the Bruce when he’s at his lowest point and has to rally all of Scotland for freedom.
