Reminds me a movie I saw three years ago called The Centurian. Its fictional story tied to a true historical event when the Scottish Picts massacred a British Roman Legion with nearly no survivors or news. The movie follows a handful of survivors as they try to rescue some POWs and escape from the Picts. It has magnificent backcountry shots of running over Scottish and British highlands, some while underdressed in the winter.

+1 Good film. Happily surprised when I redboxed it.
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:
