Synopsis

Triple bill featuring three epic adventure movies. In 'Kingdom of Heaven' (2005), a common man finds himself thrust into a decades-long war. Orlando Bloom plays a humble blacksmith who discovers that he is the son of a knght, and travels to the Holy Land to fight in the crusades. A stranger in a strange land, he serves a doomed King, falls in love with an exotic and forbidden Queen, and rises to knighthood. Ultimately, he must protect the people of Jerusalem from overwhelming forces, while striving to keep a fragile peace. 'Tristan and Isolde' (2006) is set after the fall of the Roman Empire. The warlords of England are brutally kept in line by the forces of Irish King Donnchadh (David O'Hara). One of these leaders, Lord Marke (Rufus Sewell) seeks to unite the English tribes to form one strong nation to rule itself. His greatest knight is Tristan (James Franco), whom Marke raised since he was orphaned in an Irish attack that also took Marke's family. With Tristan by his side, Marke believes he can unify his people and rid England of Irish rule. But Tristan harbors a terrible secret. In 'Braveheart' (1995), in 14th century Scotland, the English nobles are staking their claim for lands and the Scottish throne. When William Wallace (Mel Gibson) is left an orphan by the brutality of the English, he vows to make Scotland strong again. Wallace grows up into a paradox of a man - on the one hand very well educated, on the other a ruthless killer and barbarian. As an adult he succeeds in uniting the Scottish clans to fight the English oppressors, and is only undone by betrayal and greed.
