On her wedding day, with just hours to go until the ceremony, a young woman's future is suddenly thrown into chaos by the appearance of a former lover in the period drama of the autumn Cheerful Weather for the Wedding; released on DVD, Blu-ray, digital download and video on demand by Universal Pictures UK on 14th January 2013.

Charming and funny, but also unforgiving and unsentimental, the film received rave reviews on its world premiere this year at the Tribecca Film Festival. Filmed on location in the Wiltshire countryside, with stunning vistas and glorious period houses, fans of Downton Abbey and period dramas will enjoy and identify with the themes of love triangles, disruptive family gatherings and a stunning countryside wedding.

Felicity Jones (Chalet Girl, Like Crazy), Luke Treadaway (Attack the Block, Clash of the Titans), Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey, The Wings of the Dove) and scene stealing comedic moments from Mackenzie Crook (The Office, Pirates of the Caribbean) and Fenella Woolgar (Bright Young Things), lead a start-studded cast with English period drama credentials including Barbara Flynn (Cranford, Miss Potter), Ellie Kendrick (Diary of Anne Frank, Game of Thrones), Julian Wadham (Middlemarch, The Iron Lady) and John Standing (Mrs Dalloway, A Dance to the Music of Time) in the feature film debut for director Donald Rice, son of Sir Tim, with a soundtrack composed by Michael Price, the man behind the sounds of TV's Sherlock, Tinker Tailor, Soldier Spy and music editor on Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason.

When Julia Strachey's novella, Cheerful Weather for the Wedding, was published in 1932, drawing heavily on her own experiences, Virginia Woolf described it as "a clever, indeed rather remarkable acidulated story... I think it astonishingly good - complete and sharp and individual".

On a crisp December morning in 1932, bride-to-be Dolly (Felicity Jones) hides in her bedroom as her many family members arrive for the wedding with all the cheerfulness, chaos and grievances that go with such occasions. But trouble soon appears with the arrival of Joseph (Luke Treadaway), Dolly's lover from the previous summer, who, to her mother's (Elizabeth McGovern) exasperation, throws Dolly's feelings into turmoil.

With lavish costumes and beautiful English countryside, Cheerful Weather For The Wedding is a joy from start to finish in the grand tradition of English period comedy-dramas, filled with light-hearted humour and steamy romance.
