Al Pacino stars as a rough-hewn trapper drawn into the conflict in this compelling adventure framed by the violent summer of 1776 and the bloody victory of Yorktown in 1781. Revising the Theatrical Release exclusively for home viewing, director Hugh Hudson (Chariots of Fire) depicts Americas birth in a visceral style unlike most period movies. The production design, cinematography, John Corigliano score and strong cast (Donald Sutherland, Nastassja Kinski and Joan Plowright) combine for an effect revolutionary and powerful.

A Scottish trapper in colonial New York reluctantly joins the American Revolution in an effort to protect his son, who has been drafted against his will. Miscast but interesting ensemble!
