(mbc.net) William Wallace (Mel Gibson) is an educated Scot who has traveled the world. He marries Murron MacClannough (Catherine McCormack), a childhood friend. Their marriage must remain a secret however, or else the country’s rulers will enact primae noctis, a royal decree ensuring local lords the right to a woman’s virginity.
Noncompliance to primae noctis is death. Authorities rape Murron after discovering the marriage and slit her throat. Wallace becomes outraged and retaliates for the killing. Upon witnessing his act of bravery villagers stand behind Wallace in solidarity, though their heroic stance is not without a price.
Braveheart earned more than $210 million internationally and five Oscars.
