Click here for her thoughtful article in today’s Independent, which includes not only a link to the movie trailer but also (oh dear, this must be what my mother used to call ‘blowing your own trumpet’) a mention of one Roman Army medic called Ruso.
‘The Eagle’, directed by Kevin Macdonald and based on Rosemary Sutcliff’s ‘Eagle of the Ninth’, is released in the UK on 25 March. If the trailer link from the Independent site doesn’t work, there’s another one here.
