Cheerful Weather For The Wedding review

Sub-Downton 1930s period drama

With old flame Joseph (Luke Treadaway) among the guests, it’s no wonder bride-to-be Dolly (Felicity Jones) is having second thoughts in Donald Rice’s slight, 1930s-set drama.

Buckling under the influence of Downton Abbey , Rice apes its style but none of the substance to create an amiable study of posh hypocrisy without any real satire or social feeling.

Instead, the will she/won’t she dynamic, padded out with flashbacks, offers a weightless vision of how beastly love can be.

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