Young aristocrat Anthony Raine returns home from India to search the farmers of Pembrokeshire protesting about the rates of a tollgate run by something named "The Whitman Turnpike Trust", headed by the drunken King Sarn (Peter O'Toole). So Raine dresses up as a woman, calls himself Rebecca, and leads the common folks to win over their masters.

Rebecca's Daughters Reviews:

The original screenplay for this movie was written by Dylan Thomas, and this ver by Karl Francis (a welshman himself) is appropriately absurd. The element of cross-dressing (not transvestism) involved earned the movie a '15' certificate in the UK, perhaps not warranted by any another aspect of it.Although based on real historical events, the true poverty and desperation of the period in which the movie is set have been removed, and replaced with the standard characterisation of the Welsh as being unquestioningly religious, and given to mordant humour.As can be imagined, a plot which involves boys dressing up as girls gives plenty of occasions for ribaldry. Peter O'Toole is gloriously over-the-top as a drunken Lord, Simon Dormandy is a buffoonish cavalry officer, and the characters played by Dafydd Hywel, Sue Roderick, Huw Ceredig and even Joely Richardson have some great earthy witticisms to deliver.The welsh countryside in which the scenes were shot gives a great light feel to the film, although it doesn't rain as much as ought to be expected; some local stately homes and buildings (such as Atlantic College) are impressive in the indoor sequences.A great evening's fun to watch.


This magnificent comic movie centres around the Welsh rebellions vs the iniquitous toll gate trusts and in particular on the exploits of a latter day cross-dressing Robin Hood in the form of Rebecca. The plot is standard fair, the terrible (Welsh) standing up to the evil rich (English), in this particular situation over the trouble of the toll streets which are bleeding the folks dry while the toll gate owners receive fat and rich on their misery. What makes this exceptional movie stand out, is the wonderfully paced, witticism-strewn dialogue, the fabulous characters and the nice acting. Two performances in particular demand praise: Joely Richardson as the somewhat contrary Rhiannon manages to be both cutely sexy and disarmingly hilarious in equal measure and Peter O'Toole is superb as the corrupt magistrate/landlord King Sarn, each debauched overblown speech and bon mot being an absolute comic delight, to be quoted advertisement nausea. An absolute gotta see movie that I just hope makes it to DVD.
