| Far from cheerful, very sad, even though there are moments of humor, but nicely done and worth seeing
Dolly (Felicity Jones) is in her wedding gown, upstairs at her British mansion, in thought. Waiting on the first floor, where the ceremony will take place, is her fiancé, Owen (James Norton) and assorted guests. However, also in the crowd, is Felicity's former flame, Joseph (Luke Treadaway), whom she alone has invited. Last summer, just a few short months ago, they were in the throws of a "hot affair". Yet, things have cooled, as Joseph took off for Greece. Therefore, just why did Dolly invited Joe? Was it because she was uncertain whether she should marry Owen, in a hastily arranged nuptials, without seeing Joseph again? Her domineering mother, Hettie (Elizabeth McGovern) was hoping for a day without problems or hitches. Sister Kitty was just hoping to meet eligible young men. Now, will the wedding take place? This sad, very British stiff-upper-lip story, is one of the bleakest studies of love and marriage there could ever be. Its true, passions do go hot and cold and marriage is supposed to be forever, especially during the thirties when this tale takes place. One indeed must choose wisely but to secure that decision on ones own all important day is tragic indeed, especially for those left out. Aside from this, though, the film does have some funny moments and is gorgeous to view, with elaborate sets, costumes, and art direction. The cast, too, very large, with characters written for both upstairs and downstairs, is quite fine. If you adore well made films, are an Anglophile, like romantic dramas, or have a yen for Merchant-Ivory type pieces, this is the newest recommendation for you.
