Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

 

Rob Roy
Directed by Michael Caton-Jones
MGM Home Entertainment 04/95 DVD/VHS Feature Film
R - violence, sexuality

Rob Roy is a fine and fetching swashbuckling drama animated by equal doses of heroism and love. Liam Neeson plays Rob Roy, the fiercely proud and courageous head of the 18th century Scottish MacGregor clan. All that is dear to him is put in jeopardy when two men in the employ of the rich and powerful Marquis of Montrose (John Hurt) betray him.

Jessica Lange tops her Academy Award-winning performance in "Blue Sky" as Mary, the resilient, strong-willed, and sensual wife of Rob Roy. Tim Roth is deliciously wicked as Cunningham, a man with no morals at all. Director Michael Caton-Jones capitalizes on the lush scenery of the Scottish highlands and screenplay writer Alan Sharp has fashioned dialogue that is both lovely and literate.
