About the Film: One of the greatest action movies ever made. Alexander Nevsky tells the gripping story of the invasion of Russia by medieval Teutonic Knights. Prince Alexander Nevsky rallies his people into a ragtag army and defeats the invaders. This true story is based on an actual battle on a lake near Novgorod.
