Rob Roy had the misfortune of premiering the same year as a certain other film about a Scottish folk hero who rose up against the English. While Braveheart (1995) made a shitton of money, won five Oscars, and piled on the historical inaccuracies left and right, Rob Roy was basically ignored. While this story has its own inaccuracies, the costumes are pretty damn good because they were designed by the one and only Sandy Powell. Also, we get the baddies Tim Roth as Archibald Cunningham and John Hurt as James Graham, 4th Marquess of Montrose, wearing faaaaaaabulous early 18th-century suits and full-bottomed wigs, so that alone is worth throwing back on this Thursday for!
Do you remember the pretty boy’s costumes of Rob Roy?
