Synopsis

The film Braveheart had a surprising impact on the political change in Scotland, coinciding with the return of the Scottish Parliament after 300 years. The film was described as 'the most politically influential movie of the 20th century'. 'Better the pen than the sword' said Randall Wallace on being asked how it felt to be partly responsible for the freedom of a nation following the Devolution Referendum. The first written about the movie, this book looks at the life and legacy of William Wallace through his modern portrayal image in the movie.

Lin Anderson was born in Greenock, but has lived and travelled across Scotland. Her five years spent in the African bush inspired her collection of African short stories, one of which was published in the 10th Anniversary Macallan collection and broadcast on Radio 4. Formerly Head of Computing at a prominent Edinburgh school, she now teaches part-time to devote more time to writing and script development. She developed the website www macbraveheart.co.uk (which has had over half a million visitors since 1314) with her husband John and this inspired the book.
