The Pirates of Penzance is a 1983 film adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan's classic comic operetta of the same name. The film stars Kevin Kline, Linda Ronstadt, Rex Smith, and Angela Lansbury in a story about an unusual crew of upper-class pirates, and one young man town between his life as a pirate and a budding romance. Smith plays Frederic, a young man from an aristocratic English family. When he reaches apprenticeship age, his nursemaid, Ruth (Lansbury), is told to find Frederic an apprenticeship as a pilot. Ruth mishears her instructions, and instead finds the young man an apprenticeship as a pirate. The Pirates of Penzance are a feared gang of orphaned nobleman. The pirates are led by The Pirate King (Kevin Kline). The Pirate King may not be the fiercest pirate around, but he undoubtedly has the best fashion sense. As Frederic nears his 21st birthday, the age that marks the end of his apprenticeship, the truth comes out about his nursemaid's blunder and Frederic winds up caught in the middle of a brewing battle between the outlaws he's lived with for so many years and the English aristocracy he once belonged to. The Pirates of Penzance is a must-see for musical fans, full of fantastic musical numbers and hilarious characters.moreless
