Trailer/Clip for 'Cheerful Weather for the Wedding'

I know...that title. But, looks well done. Based on the novel by Julia Strachey. Directed by Donald Rice. With Felicity Jones (Hysteria, Like Crazy).

I'm betting Strachey's novel is a good read. Of it Virginia Woolf wrote: 'I think it astonishingly good - complete and sharp and individual.'

Here's the rundown (from Wikipedia):
  • Today is Dolly's (Felicity Jones) wedding day, and her family is arriving at the manor house with all the cheerfulness, chaos and petty grievances that bubble to the surface at such gatherings. Trouble soon appears with the arrival of Joseph (Luke Treadaway), Dolly's lover from the previous summer, who throws her feelings into turmoil. To her mother's (Elizabeth McGovern) exasperation, his presence threatens to upset the design she had for her daughter's future. Dolly, for her part, just can't decide whether to run away with Joseph or start a new life in Argentina with her husband to be.
If you're in the mood for an English period piece, and who isn't now and then, looks like this has the goods.
