What a sweet little movie I’ve just watched. Fun, light and exactly what I needed. The Abduction Club is a club of young noblemen who are unfortunate to be second (or more) born and therefore not entitled to inherit their parents’ estate – that honour goes to the the first born. In order to avoid becoming priests or soldiers, they meet heiresses, abduct them and convince the ladies to marry. Byrne and Strang, two of these abductors, get more than they bargained for when they kidnap sisters Catharine and Anne.
I watched pretty much the whole thing with a smile on my face (except for one or two parts) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good, light entertainment that is perfect for rounding off a long day. Don’t take it too seriously. Just sit back and enjoy the escapism.
