Braveheart (1995) Poster


James Robinson: Young William


  • Young William : I can fight.

    Malcolm Wallace : I know. I know you can fight. But it's our wits that make us men.

  • Argyle Wallace : Did the priest give a poetic benediction? "The Lord bless thee and keep thee...?

    Young William : It was in Latin.

    Argyle Wallace : You don't speak Latin? Well that's something we shall have to remedy, isn't it?

  • Young William : What are they doin'?

    Argyle Wallace : Saying goodbye in their own way. Playing outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes.

    Narrator : I shall tell you of William Wallace. Historians from England will say I am a liar, but history is written by those who have hanged heroes. The king of Scotland had died without a son, and the king of England, a cruel pagan known as Edward the Longshanks, claimed the throne of Scotland for himself. Scotland's nobles fought him, and fought each other, over the crown. So Longshanks invited them to talks of truce - no weapons, one page only. Among the farmers of that shire was Malcolm Wallace, a commoner with his own lands; he had two sons, John and William.

    Malcolm Wallace : I told ye to stay.

    Young William : Well, I finished my work. Where're we goin'?

    Malcolm Wallace : McAndrews'. He was supposed to visit when the gatherin' was over.

    Young William : Can I come?

    Malcolm Wallace : No! Go home, boy.

    Young William : But I want to go.

    Malcolm Wallace : Go home, William, or you'll feel the back o' my hand.

  • Argyle Wallace : We'll stay here tonight. Tomorrow, you'll come home with me.

    Young William : I don't want to leave.

    Argyle Wallace : You didn't want your father to die either, did ya? But it happened.
