Movie Info

The title refers to Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette, a French aristocrat who lived from 1757 to 1834; as helmed by Oren Jacoby, this biographical documentary tells of the Marquis's life and times. A controversial figure (and one commonly overlooked by historians), Lafayette left home before his 20th birthday to fight for the independence of the then-fledgling United States; later, in the 1780s, Lafayette returned to France and courageously struggled for democratic reform. The strength of his convictions and the success of his actions eventually helped him glean heroic stature among his fellow Frenchmen.

Audience Reviews for Lafayette: The Lost Hero

½

I liked how it was done. It revealed information about Marquis de Lafayette which I was not aware of. I liked that they actually went to the major locations that Lafayette went to. I liked how they used visual aids such as paintings, maps, and films from the past to help provide a better awareness to Lafayette. I never realised how young Lafayette was when he arrived in America or that he had lost his parents at such an early age.
