You'll never take our .........

Taking a little break from blogging about my Canada/USA holiday!

Last night Sinéad and I headed to Trim Castle for the special screening of the Oscar winning film Braveheart to commemorate its 20th anniversary. In the film Trim Castle was used as the location for the city of York during the 1298 Battle of York.

Some people obviously went to much more effort than we did to get into the spirit of the occasion.

The highlight of the show was viewing the film on a 60 meter screen. There was something magical about seeing the film against the wall of the castle that it was filmed in.

Of course the loudest cheer of the night was for the famous "You'll never take our freedom" speech.

One thing I hadn't noticed the first time I watched it, was the amount of blood and gore. During the battle scenes there were arms and legs flying everywhere and faces being bashed in by axes.
It made Game of Thrones look like an episode of Little House on the Prairie!
