Braveheart script
Braveheart (1995)
Synopsis: Tells the story of the legendary thirteenth century Scottish hero named William Wallace (Mel Gibson). Wallace rallies the Scottish against the English monarch and Edward I (Peter Hanly) after he suffers a personal tragedy by English soldiers. Wallace gathers a group of amateur warriors that is stronger than any English army.

WILLIAM:

R -- real!!!... Ahhhhhgggg!...

He turns to run, but knocks back into the feet of the hanged

man behind him! In blind panic he darts in another direction,

and runs into another corpse, and another; the hanged men

begin to swing, making it harder for William's father and

older brother to fight their way to him.

FATHER:

William! William!

Then, worst of all, William sees the pages, boys like himself,

hanged in a row behind their masters!

Finally his father and brother reach William and hug him

tight. There in the barn, among the swinging bodies of the

hanged nobles, Malcolm Wallace grips his sons.

FATHER:

Murderin' English bastards.

CUT TO:

EXT. WALLACE FARMHOUSE - NIGHT

The cottage looks peaceful, the windows glowing yellow into

the night. From outside the house we see John rise and close

the shutters of the kitchen, where men are gathered. We PAN

UP to the upper bedroom window...

INSIDE THAT BEDROOM

Young William is in nightmarish sleep. He mumbles in smothered

terror; he twitches. We see

HIS NIGHTMARE:

In the blue-grays of his dream, William stands at the door

of the barn, gazing at the hanged knights. We WHIP PAN to

their faces, garish, horrible... Then one of the heads moves

and its eyes open! William wants to run, but he can't get

his body to respond... and the hanging nobleman, his bloated

tongue still bursting through his lips, moans...
