Mel portrayed 13th century warrior William Wallace in the movie, which depicted the life of Wallace leading the Scots in the First War of Scottish Independence against King Edward I of England.

The film also starred Sophie Marceau, Patrick McGoohan and Catherine McCormack.

It was nominated for 10 Oscars and ended up winning five at the 1995 Academy awards, including Best Director for Mel Gibson.
