Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, the director/producer team responsible for such
sci-fi blockbusters as Independence Day, Stargate, and Godzilla, take a step
back in time with this drama set during the American Revolution. Farmer Benjamin
Martin (Mel Gibson) was born and raised in South Carolina, and fought bravely
during the French-Indian wars. But since the death of his wife, Benjamin has
renounced violence and quietly tends his crops, raising his seven children
alone. In 1776, over Benjamin's objections, his oldest son Gabriel (Heath
Ledger) joins the fight against the British. Gabriel returns from battle
seriously wounded, with Lord General Cornwallis (Tom Wilkinson) calling for his
arrest. A skirmish breaks out on Benjamin's plantation, and one of his children
is killed as Gabriel is captured by Col. Tavington (Jason Isaacs) and sentenced
to hang. Benjamin sets aside his vow of pacifism and rescues Gabriel; with the
help of his former comrade-in-arms Harry Burwell (Chris Cooper), the father and
son form a regiment of Carolina patriots whose cunning and ruthlessness make
them heroes among the colonists -- and wanted men by British troops. Loosely
adapted from the true story of Francis Marion and filmed on location in South
Carolina, The Patriot was the first feature film made with the cooperation of
the Smithsonian Institute, who advised the producers on historical accuracy.
Joely Richardson also stars as Charlotte, Benjamin's sister-in-law who helps him
care for the children.
