The Abduction Club

Fast and furious period romp inspired by real events in 18th century Ireland. Byrne (Daniel Lapaine) and Strang (Matthew Rhys) are two handsome, witty, twenty-somethings from wealthy families eager to marry rich society ladies. Unfortunately, they haven't a hope of succeeding as in accordance with the laws of the time - the family fortunes have passed to their elder brothers and they are completely penniless. Their only option is The Abduction Club, which will allow them to kidnap such women with the intention of persuading them into marriage. Many a successful love match has been made this way but when Byrne and Strang target the headstrong Kennedy sisters, they discover they've bitten off a little more than they can chew.
