Braveheart

Mel Gibson plays William Wallace who leads the scots in a brutal rebelion against the english after his wife is killed and his homestead burnt to the ground.

Robert the Bruce, the leader of the Scotish clans is torn between following Wallace into battle as he leads the clans on a victorious campaign against the english armies that takes land from the english as far south as York (thats nearly half of england for non english readers)

Will Robert the Bruce lead the clans and help Wallace and the rebelion conquer england or will he fall into line and stand by as the English king subdues the rebelious armies.

Visible crew/equipment: At the funeral of William Wallace's wife, Murron, a white van can be seen. He bends down to kiss her and as he stands back up, if you look over his left shoulder through the trees you can see the van going past. It's very quick, small, and blurred, but it's there.
