For those who think that Gretna Green is just Nicole Brown Simpson's former address, Rob Roy: Legend of the Mist is the perfect Scottish history primer. The disc opens with a visually arresting aerial tour of the Scottish highlands accompanied by period music. Information about historic places like Gretna Green (the quickie marriage capital of 18th-century Scotland) flesh out the context of Rob Roy the movie. As a bonus you get an insider's look into the making of the film, including behind-the-scenes interviews with Liam Neeson, Jessica Lange and others. History aficionados may walk away still hungry for facts. But serious movie buffs and those who just want to capture screen shots of stars Neeson and Eric Stoltz in kilts will find Rob Roy richly satisfying.
