Sweet Liberty is directed by and stars Alan Alda as history professor Michael Burgess, who is initially delighted that his novel about the The American Revolution is being turned into a Hollywood movie. That excitement is short-lived, however, when the film crew arrives in his own North Carolina town and he realizes that they have distorted his work to be flashy, not at all historically accurate like his book. The stars of the movie (played by Michael Caine and Michelle Pfeiffer) wreak havoc on the love lives of the townsfolk, including Professor Burgess. Fed up with the whole mess, he enlists the help of the Revolutionary War reenactors to sabotage the filming.
