Frenchman’s Creek (1998) short review

Based on the book by Daphne du Maurier, which I obviously never read, because I had NO idea that this movie was set in the 17th century or about pirates. But it is! Tara Fitzgerald is a wealthy aristocrat on the wrong side of British politics, who gets involved with a French privateer.  It’s decently well done but nothing thrilling. The costumes are nice but not spectacular.
