I really enjoyed this film. Jason Isaacs is a great bad guy and Mel Gibson is a hero to root for. In many ways it is Braveheart set in America but it is still a great film.
A much gritter depiction of Revolutionary America, but that's what you expect from a movie staring
Are you stuck at home sick and need a marathon to help you celebrate the 4th? This is the mini-series for you. An excellent portrayal of one of the founding fathers by Paul Giamatti.
Jeff Daniels stars as George Washington in this film about the Battle of Trenton and the famous crossing of the Delaware River.
Jefferson In Paris
Looking for something a little different? Do you love Merchant Ivory films? I do. This beautifully shot movie deals with Thomas Jefferson's time in Paris as the French Ambassador. It isn't exactly Revolutionary War but it is a gorgeous film.
