A film by Hugh Hudson.
Al Pacino heads a stellar cast (including Nastassja Kinski, Donald Sutherland, Richard O Brien, Joan Plowright, and Annie Lennox) in this powerful and unsentimental depiction of the American War of Independence,
Epic in scale and execution, Hugh Hudson's film follows the fortunes of single father Tom Dobb (played with dogged resilience by Al Pacino) as he fights to protect his only son against the violent course of History. Superb performances, breathtaking set pieces and a poignant score by John Corigliano combine to produce an uncompromising evocation of the chaos and squalor of war.
