The Eagle

Twenty years after his father mysteriously disappeared with the Roman Ninth Legion in rural Caledonia, a Roman soldier ventures into the treacherous territory. His goal: to recover Rome's golden eagle emblem and redeem his family's name. Set in 140 A.D., the tale follows determined centurion Marcus Aquila and his slave Esca--a native of Britain whom he's not certain he can trust--as they journey into the remote lands occupied by savage warrior tribes that live to slay Romans. Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Donald Sutherland and Mark Strong star in this first-rate historical epic. Directed by Kevin Macdonald; screenplay by Jeremy Brock. Based on the novel The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff.
