Period Piece movies: Rob Roy (1995)

This film about Scottish Highlander Rob Roy McGreggor, directed by Michal Caton-Jones, shows Scotland in the early 18th century. Set in the aftermath of the Union of England and Scotland, it also skirts around the Jacobite rebellions of 1715, and yet, set in 1718, it shows how Jacobite Highlanders could fight in their own country, but were being ground down by changes in society,  and economy.
