Delightful movie
24 September 2000 | by nkdnatlSee all my reviews

The Clandestine Marriage is definitely not Hawthorne's best work (Madness of King George) but it is quite fun and he does do a great job as the old, odd Lord Oglesby. The rest of the cast is fairly good too, especially Tom Hollander as Sir John and Timothy Spall as Sterling. Joan Collins was over-the-top and, in her English accent with a German twist, was kind of difficult to understand. Overall, I thought this a very entertaining, well-acted movie.
