Lafayette: The Lost Hero

2010 NR

The marquis de Lafayette (Patrick Bauchau) was a French aristocrat turned distinguished American general and statesman, yet he is remembered mainly by way of the towns that bear his name. This searching documentary uncovers the story of democracy's forgotten father. A soldier at 19, drafter of the Declaration of the Rights of Man, prisoner of war -- these are but a few of the milestones that mark Lafayette's illustrious and stormy career.
