LOS ANGELES, CA — (06-09-19) — Robert the Bruce trailer starring Angus Macfayden has just been released by Metro International. Robert the Bruce is a 2019 historical drama film directed by Richard Gray.

A character-driven ensemble piece, Robert the Bruce portrays the Scottish hero’s relationship with a peasant family as a galvanizing influence on his struggle for independence and his ensuing reign.

The film focuses on a winter in which the whereabouts of Robert the Bruce are in doubt, telling one of several stories that survive in historical accounts.

Angus Macfadyen Returns in Robert the Bruce

“Following a series of military losses, with his army in tatters and the success of his rebellion in doubt, Robert retreats from the battlefield.  Alone, injured, and pursued by fortune-seekers intent on collecting a bounty placed on his head by King Edward of England, he finds refuge in the croft of a peasant woman and the three children in her care – a teenage nephew, a young niece, and her own son.

They care for him, forging a powerful bond, even though their clan is aligned with England. This connection inspires Robert with a deeper understanding of the patriotism of ordinary Scots, which drives his passionate return to the national stage and, ultimately, to victory and independence.”

Robert the Bruce also stars Emma Kenney, Jared Harris, Zach McGowan, Anna Hutchison and Daniel Portman. Metro International has scheduled Robert the Bruce to be released on June 28, 2019.
