When Casey Cantrell's mother died, her last wish was that her daughter would give a letter to Lord Richard Bredon, living in the UK. 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

Tears will reign, and probably fisticuffs, too, if anyone ever makes you watch this gobbler
9 February 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Beautiful Casey (Sharon Stone) takes a bus in the rain to a British castle, where she tries to climb over the wall. Naturally, she gets busted, by handsome Michael (Christopher Cazenove). He is taken with this young trespasser but she is coy and leaves after a brief conversation. Nevertheless, Michael, a son of the man Casey has traveled from America to meet, tracks her down at the inn. Before long, Mike is made to understand that Casey's mother was once an acquaintance of his father, maybe more so. Casey, in fact, has a letter, written before her mother's death, that she wants to give Mikey's dad. But, there are complications, as the father is a very important government official and has little spare time. Michael, indeed, tries to distract Casey by romancing the gorgeous American and doing little to have her meet anyone else. But, what does the letter say and will it have repercussions about the futures of both Casey and Michael? This ultimate "gobbler" is not recommended for anyone. It unfolds like a bad, bad Harlequin book, very trite and very clumsy. To be sure, Stone looks lovely and does her best, as does Cazenove, who went on to be a supporting star in Three Men and a Little Lady, among other films. But, there is an utter lack of any intelligence or meaning in the script. Okay, the British setting is nice and the costumes are attractive. So what? Do not let anyone talk you into watching this film, as tears will indeed reign from the sheer torture of a view.
