"Braveheart", Winner of the Best Picture Oscar

The film was an international success. In Australia, it broke box office records - and not only because Mel Gibson is a local hero down-under. "Braveheart" has an universal message: right against might, principle against opportunism. At its most basic it is a war film, but one which appeals to both sexes and all generations.
