Editorial Reviews

United Kingdom released, Blu-Ray/Region A/B/C : it WILL NOT play on regular DVD player. You need Blu-Ray DVD player to view this Blu-Ray DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Dolby DTS-HD Master Audio ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (2.35:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Behind the scenes, Commentary, Featurette, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: On a crisp December morning in 1932, bride-to-be Dolly (Felictiy Jones) hides in her bedroom as her many family members arrive for the wedding with all of the cheerfulness, chaos and grievances that go with such occasions. But trouble soon appears with the arrival of Joseph (Luke Treadaway), Dolly's lover from the previous summer, who, to her mother's (Elizabeth McGovern - Downton Abbey) exasperation, throws Dolly's feelings into turmoil. With lavish costumes and beautiful English countryside, Cheerful Weather For The Wedding is a joy from start to finish in the grand tradition of English period comedy-dramas, filled with light-hearted humour and steamy romance. ...Cheerful Weather for the Wedding (2012)

Customer Reviews

Very good casting.
Diane K. Wilson
We also get flashbacks to the lovers the previous summer, boating on the river, kissing in the conservatory, running through the rain etc etc.
Alan A. Elsner
The movie is not anything like what is described by the plot summary.

I have to say, I'm shocked that so many people have given this film a bad review! I watched it last night and it is one of my new favorite films. The overall plot is, admittedly, rather slow moving, but this film wasn't meant to be fast paced with lots of explosions and car chases, it was meant to be a deep examination of people. The film covered one day - Dolly's wedding day, but throughout the film we got glimpses of past experiences and we also saw different perspectives of the events of the day. I thought the acting was very well done, Felicity Jones is very talented and Elizabeth McGovern really added a lot. Also the set of the film was absolutely beautiful! This film is very rich, visually, with beautiful costumes and contrast in the lighting between the present and the flashbacks. I loved the character development and the overall feel of the entire film. It really is one of my new favorite films! It is worth seeing if you like intelligent films that really examine the human condition but also have humor and a good bit of English culture!

I was just adding this DVD to my wishlist when I saw all the horrible reviews. I am stunned!

This film is a slow paced, British period drama. If you don't like those things you won't appreciate this film!

Admittedly, I did think it was a bit slow the first time I watched it. The second time I watched this I was significantly more involved. My heart was breaking for the characters, I really connected with them and picked up on all the wonderful little jokes and subtleties. And that is just what this film is, subtle. You really have to pay attention for it all to come together...The dialogue is delightful and sharp, just what I love about British films. The title is ironic, it is not a cheerful film and can't possibly be enjoyed unless you are in the mood it.

The acting is great, Miss Jones looks GORGEOUS and the costumes and setting delightful!!! It all really comes together for me and is one of my favorites.

Enjoy!

Ah, the British! They have their eccentricities that have been providing fodder for little films for years - from the great stories of EM Forster, Evelyn Waugh, Julian Fellowes et al to the little dramadies such as this one written by director Donald Rice with Mary Henely-Magill, CHEERFUL WEATHER FOR THE WEDDING. They come off best when the odd class-oriented families take themselves seriously, covering their narrow view of the world of civility with accents so thick and rapidly delivered that without subtitles it is difficult to follow the script! But they are enchanting, especially when delivered by a cast of superb actors who are able to enter these odd characters' psyches and make us titter while we endure their snobbishness.

This film is meticulously presented and is both a celebration of English eccentricity and an understated examination of how families often do everything they can to avoid saying how they really feel. Dolly Thatcham (Felicity Jones) is to be married to the wealthy Owen (James Norton) after a very brief engagement: Dolly delays her preparations for the ceremony by drinking rum upstairs as she has flashbacks to her real romance a summer ago with the young professor Joseph Patten (Luke Treadaway) whom Dolly has invited to the wedding (to her mother's (Elizabeth McGovern) chagrin and Joseph waits downstairs with the entire bizarre family and friends awaiting Dolly's descent to proceed to the church. The story is interrupted with all manner of subplots including the strange behavior of Dolly's younger sister Kitty (Ellie Kendrick) who provides the audience with a naïveté that reveals so much about what everyone else is really thinking but just can't bring themselves to say.

The movie builds up to what seems like a momentous explosion of plot resolution, and then suddenly deflates. Nonetheless, beautiful photography and Greta acting on the part of the 3 main characters.

Very interesting storyline and absolutely gorgeous visually. Not the usual "here comes the happy happy bride" film. Very good casting.

I got suckered into watching this because I thoroughly enjoyed the trailer on YouTube, especially the last 45 seconds or so because of the piano music (which is not in the movie. I hate when that happens.). It makes you think you're in for a lush, melancholy, bittersweet romantic adventure. But it was depressing as hell and the characters were snippy, selfish, and boring.

Heaven forfend that Brits should admit/commit to full throttle anything. Limbo is the perfect balancing point of any kind of emotion in the 'Isles.' And the best way to assure that blissful status is to do the exact opposite of every instinct in your repetoire.
Hence we are introduced to an engaged couple who are exactly wrong for each other, in the eleventh hour before the knot is tied. And at the same moment, through a series of flashbacks and flash-sideways--meet the alternative to the groom that could set the situation on the right road. Classic 'feints' and stabs at getting it right are by-passed at every opportunity until happiness slogs off into the swamp, never to be seen again. The reason 'Americans' don't get this stuff is because OUR forebears were not polite victims terrorized by the very thought of embarassment...and 'ergo' LEFT jolly old to their timid contemporaries. If you are an Englishman or an Anglophile, excuse my point of view, you will just love this tepid little adventure.
