Description
It's December 1932 in merry old England, and a gorgeous morning for nuptials. The bride-to-be (Felicity Jones) should be overjoyed at the wonderful day about to unfold. Instead, she's sequestered in her room with a bottle of rum, mooning about the time she spent last summer with a handsome young anthropology professor (Luke Treadaway). NPR's Ian Buckwalter remarked on this 2012 film's "lush period settings, passive-aggressive wit and even Elizabeth McGovern turning up to play, as she does on Downton Abbey, the mother of a family seemingly always poised just on the edge of social disaster. (Her daughters, in another Downton echo, possess a remarkable flair for the dramatic.).... The circus of the family gathering is an acerbic, chaotic comedy, barreling forward with sarcastic bon mots and the occasional small explosion." Adapted from a 1932 novella by Julia Strachey, the film also stars the delightfully named Mackenzie Crook and Fenella Woolgar as an oddball couple with a miscreant son.

"A complex, melancholic farce."Time Out New York
