Join us on Sunday afternoons this January and February as we “Count down to the Oscars” by viewing the most recent Best Picture Winners. Gladiator was the 2000 winner. Once a great Roman General, Maximus has been forced into exile and slavery by the jealous heir to the throne, Commodus. Trained as a gladiator, Maximus returns to Rome, intent on avenging the murder of his family by killing Commodus, now Emperor. The only power stronger than that of the Emperor is the will of the people, and Maximus knows he can only attain his revenge by becoming the greatest hero in all the Empire. Rated R.
