Desperate Remedies Details


Taking place in 19th-century New Zealand, this over-the-top melodrama stars [[Performer~P236381~Kevin Smith~kevinsmith]] as Lawrence Hayes, who is spotted by the beautiful but reserved Dorothea Brook ([[Performer~P74673~Jennifer Ward-Lealand~jenniferwardlealand]]). She asks Lawrence to do her a favor and marry her sister Rose in order to keep Rose away from her drug-dealing boyfriend, Fraser ([[Performer~P195626~Cliff Curtis~cliffcurtis]]). In return, Dorothea agrees to remunerate Lawrence for his time by giving him a tract of land of his own. But, along with the land, Lawrence also desires Dorothea. Unfortunately, Dorothea refuses to let go of her girlfriend Anne ([[Performer~P198980~Lisa Chappell~lisachappell]]). The plot further thickens when it turns out that Dorothea is also engaged to marry political boss William Poyser ([[Performer~P34094~Michael Hurst~michaelhurst]]).To solve all these problematic relationships, desperate remedies are indeed required, and Lawrence is ready to provide the solution. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
