      Audience Member Funny & good to see so many local places in the film Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A romantic drama film about double of two young adults forming a new relationship with one another was released. This film is quite strong from a dramatic standpoint as well.I can say that all the actors in this film are, as a whole, understated in their performances. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member a romantic drama film about double of two young adults forming a new relationship with one another was released. This film is quite strong from a dramatic standpoint as well.I can say that all the actors in this film are, as a whole, understated in their performances. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A highly enjoyable late 18th century swashbuckling tale of penurious younger sons of the Irish nobility who club together to kidnap potential brides. The beautiful and wealthy Kennedy sisters are the targets, and possibly not wholly opposed to the idea of marrying our heroes, Byrne and Strang, but their keen wits and sharp-tongued barbs certainly put the young fortune-hunting enthusiasts in their place. But all is not as it seems, and amidst much dashing and derring-do perhaps true love will reign triumphant? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member a perfect romantic movie ;) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Ahh, what an entertaining film to watch on sunday afternoon!! And I chose it without knowing my new favourite Mathew Rhys was in it! Romance and adventure in Ireland, what more can you wish for?
