"Lavish" --The Guardian (U.K.)
"Fine performances" --The Sun (U.K.)
"Authentic atmosphere" --London Evening Standard
John Ridd was just a boy when the villainous Doones murdered his father. Now a young man, John has two driving passions: his thirst for revenge against the outlaw Doones, and his love for the beautiful Lorna, daughter of his sworn enemies.
Clive Owen (Children of Men, Closer), Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings, Sharpe), and a luminous Polly Walker (Rome, State of Play) star in this action-packed adventure set in lawless 17th-century England during the Monmouth rebellion. Spectacular scenery, a stellar cast, and realistic period details ornament R.D. Blackmore’s beloved novel, one of the greatest love stories of all time.
With Billie Whitelaw (Quills, Napoleon and Love), Robert Stephens (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie), Hugh Fraser (Agatha Christie’s Poirot), and Miles Anderson (House of Cards).
