The Eagle Movie Synopsis:
Academy Award-winning director Kevin McDonald re-teams with The Last King of Scotland screenwriter Jeremy Brock for this historical epic set in Second Century Britain and following young centurion Marcus Aquila on his quest to solve the mystery of the missing Ninth Legion. The year is 135 A.D. It's been fifteen years since the Ninth Legion went missing in the mountains of Scotland, and it's up to Aquila to find out what happened. His own father was the commander of the Ninth, and by discovering what fate befell the fearless leader Aquila could restore his failing reputation. Crossing Hadrian's Wall and navigating the treacherous High Lands of Caledonia won't be easy though, especially since Aquila's only traveling companion is his British slave Esca. Along the way, Aquila will attempt to make peace with his father's memory as he and Esca confront the savage tribes of the land and attempt to recover the lost legion's golden emblem - the treasured Eagle of the North.
