Cheerful Weather For The Wedding Reviews

With the critical narrative information delayed until the film's final moments, it's a waiting game for the audience, not unpleasurably spent watching the gorgeous costumes and eccentric behaviour of the family and friends of an anxious bride.

Rice does a fine job of juggling so many characters and moving smoothly among flashbacks without losing sight of the main story.

Not to say it isn't an enjoyable diversion. Just that it's also a superficial one.

Entertains intermittently with its stiff-upper-lip community interplay, only truly taking command when it focuses on unspoken desires and stymied confessions.

A welcome addition to the wedding comedy sub genre, light on its feet and brimming with vivid character portraits.

A complex, melancholic farce.

A mix of pining, familial farce and sweet summer love story.

The film snaps along with dialogue loaded with barbed bon mots

Finely crafted English period piece works best for those who like their love stories romantically doomed.

The film may help Downton Abbey fanatics looking to kill a little time in that era but holds little cinematic appeal for the rest of us.

July 10, 2013

..this costume drama set in the lull between World Wars is drawn from Julia Strachey's 1932 novella (apparently much-loved by Virginia Woolf) and proves to be almost impossibly English.

If you're seriously white-knuckling for a dose of English Period Countryside Romanticism while waiting for Downton's next season to roll, Cheerful Weather for the Wedding will be like methadone: it's not going to satisfy you, but it may relieve your itch.

Period drama has simmering conflict, lacks resolution.

There's more to period drama than nice frocks and acerbic asides.

A languid film that fizzles from the start.

Shockya.com

A very mannered but deadly dull period piece drama of partially upended, stuffy social customs, and a ruinous vehicle for the incandescence of Felicity Jones.

What it doesn't have is drama or wisdom or comedy or heat, something to temper the banalities.

Something happened, you see, and someone or other felt something about it. Why that should matter, why we should care, is lost in a string of bons mots, sidelong glances and frocks.
