When Casey arrives in London, Lord Bredon denies ever having known her mother. Casey meets Lord Bredon's son Michael and both fall in love. When Lord Bredon realizes this new relationship he gets really angry, assuming Casey wants to blackmail his family somehow, and begins to investigate her background. The plot heightens dramatically when it appears that an event from the past might part the lovers. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Ridiculous
3 July 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Ugh, this movie is SO 1988. A decent cast was wasted by a ridiculous script, and the contrived ending had me laughing so hard I almost fell off my bed watching it. What else DIDN'T these stuffy parents tell their children about their long lost love lives? They could probably film a whole 'nutter movie on the subject. Too funny. I would have loved the ending where they find out they were brother and sister; that might have added some real poignancy to the story. But the script writers copped out and came up with an hysterical solution that only a dime novel romance writer would have the audacity to write.

I loved Christopher C. in Duchess of Duke Street, but this movie was badly flawed and even his talents couldn't make it better.
