BIFF Film: “Cheerful Weather for the Wedding”

January 20, 2013

The January installment of The Bermuda International Film Festival’s film series, BIFFlix, will be “Cheerful Weather for the Wedding.”

Much compared to the popular British period drama television series, “Downton Abbey,” the film will screen on Sunday January 27, 5.30pm, at The Tradewinds Auditorium in the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, 40 Crow Lane, Pembroke.

Opener-Cheerful-Weather-For-The-Wedding

The film premiered at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival and is set on a gorgeous morning in England in 1932. A young bride, Dolly [Felicity Jones, “Cemetery Junction,” “Like Crazy”], should be overjoyed at the wonderful day about to unfold. But instead she’s locked up in her room with a bottle of rum day-dreaming about the time she spent last summer with a wonderful man; who is not her fiancé.

The bride’s mother, Hetty, is played by Academy award-winning Elizabeth McGovern, who actually appears in “Downton Abbey” as Cora, Countess of Grantham, a role that earned her a ‘Best Actress – Miniseries or Television Film’ Golden Globe nomination in 2011.

Hetty scurries about the house trying to placate the arriving stream of cousins, aunts and assorted family that are beginning to chatter about the missing bride. Hetty has planned out the day to the final detail, but the one thing she can’t plan on is the arrival of Joseph [Luke Treadway], Dolly’s brash best friend, throwing everything into disarray.

A combination of delightful light comedy, passionate romance and gorgeous settings make “Cheerful Weather for the Wedding” a warm-hearted joy.

Tickets are available in advance at www.ptix.bm or purchase at the door on the day from 4:30pm with cash, check, or credit card. Tickets are priced at $15. The Film is in English and runs 93 minutes.
