The Patriot

It is the late 18th century, in South Carolina. Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson) is a veteran of the French and Indian War and a widower raising his seven children on his farm. Gabriel (Heath Ledger), the eldest, is anxious to join the American forces fighting the British in the Revolutionary War, even if it means doing so without his father's permission. Ben, who knows from first-hand experience the horrifying carnage that war presents from his experience in the French and Indian War, wants to discourage his son from participating. When Gabriel joins the fight, Benjamin reluctantly takes up the cause as well.

  1. In the interest of respect for women, I suggest you eliminate any film with Mel Gibson from the Enchanted Serenity website.
