Treachery. Romance. Rebellion. A classic adventure story for all ages.
Robert Louis Stevenson's coming-of-age adventure is back--and breathtaking--in this widely heralded Masterpiece Theatre presentation bursting with scoundrels, and scallywags, villains and heroines, and two memorable heroes who will stop at nothing in their quest for justice.
Attempting to claim his rightful inheritance from his eccentric Uncle Ebenezer, young Davie Balfour is kidnapped and imprisoned in the hold of a slave ship bound for the New World. Soon, Davie joins forces with exiled Highland hero Alan Breck and together, the unlikely pair of outlaw and innocent embark on a treacherous quest across Scotland that will bring them foes to numerous to count, as well as unexpected friends.
Newcomer James Anthony Pearson (Monarch of the Glen) delivers a transforming portrayal of lost innocence as the once-sheltered Davie, while Iain Glen (Beautiful Creatures) offers a triumphant performance as the notorious rebel Breck. Rounding out the impressive cast are Adrian Dunbar (The Crying Game, Richard III), Paul McGann (Horatio Hornblower, Dr. Who), Gregor Fisher (Love Actually), and Kirstin Coulter Smith (My Life So Far).
Kidnapped is an action-packed spectacular sure to swashbuckle its way into your heart.
