STONE OF DESTINY is the fascinating true story of a real-life Scottish Robin Hood. College student Ian Hamilton was a dedicated nationalist who deeply resented England’s subjugation of Scotland. With the help of three fellow students in 1950 Glasgow, Hamilton managed to reignite Scottish national pride with a daring raid on the very heart of England. This idealistic band of misfits breached Britain’s venerable Westminster Abbey to secure the Stone of Scone, a national treasure upon which Scottish kings had been coronated for centuries. The fabled and revered stone had been carted off more than 700 years earlier by the army of England’s King Edward I, becoming a prized possession of the United Kingdom. Eventually turning the mythical relic over to Scottish authorities, Hamilton and his band were never prosecuted—and instead celebrated as folk heroes. Based on Hamilton's book and directed by character actor Charles Martin Smith (American Graffiti), STONE OF DESTINY stars Charlie Cox (HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, Stardust, The Merchant of Venice), Kate Mara (TV’s American Horror Story, Iron Man), Billy Boyd (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, The World Is Not Enough), and Academy Award Winner Brenda Fricker (My Left Foot, A Time To Kill).
