Tribeca Watch: Felicity Jones in ‘Cheerful Weather for the Wedding’

Tribeca Watch: Felicity Jones in 'Cheerful Weather for the Wedding'

Felicity Jones can do Shakespeare (“The Tempest”) or indie romance (“Like Crazy”). Warren Beatty cast her in his new Howard Hughes movie–which may or may not get made. Next up: Donald Rice’s 1930s  period comedy “Cheerful Weather for the Wedding” debuts at Tribeca on April 20 and seeks a North American distributor. This clip reveals a veddy British ruffling of feathers at a cricket match/garden party.

The movie centers on the marriage of Dolly Thatcham (Jones) at a gorgeous manor house in 1932 England. Hell breaks loose when Dolly meets her lover from a previous summer, Joseph (Luke Treadaway).  Dolly’s mother (“Downton Abbey”‘s Elizabeth McGovern) tries to smooth things over, while her daughter debates running away with one man or beginning a new life in Argentina with another.
