British Romantic Dramedy ‘Cheerful Weather for the Wedding’ Stars Felicity Jones and Luke Treadaway


The film, Cheerful Weather for the Wedding was adapted from a 1932 novel of the same name by Julia Strachey and was directed by Donald Rice.  The film premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

Felicity Jones and Luke Treadaway are charming as the lovers Dolly and Joseph.  Felicity Jones starred in the long-distance romantic drama, Like Crazyand Luke Treadaway was a yuppie druggie in the sci-fi movie, Attack the Block.

This kind of romantic period drama-comedy is what British filmmakers do so well.   Jones’ Dolly is the hesitant bride-to-be hiding out while her family overseas wedding preparations.  Dolly is supposed to marry Owen (James Norton) but still thinks about her best friend, Joseph with whom she had a summer romance the previous year.  Joseph left and took a job in London.  Their relationship is seen through flashbacks.  Joseph arrives at wedding hoping to see Dolly before she gets married and throws everything into chaos.  Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey) plays Dolly’s mother who is suspicious of Joseph’s presence at the event.  Ellie Kendrick is Kitty, Dolly’s sister who is desperate to land a man of her own.
