All eyes are on Felicity Jones following her award-winning breakout turn in “Like Crazy.” She had a supporting part in “Hysteria,” which made its world premiere at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, but “Cheerful Weather for the Wedding” (making its world premiere at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival) marks her first lead since the film that put her on the map.
Set in 1932, “Cheerful Weather” centers on Dolly (Jones), a bride-to-be who locks herself in her bedroom with a jug of rum on the morning of her wedding. Elizabeth McGovern (“Downton Abbey”‘s Lady Crawley) plays Dolly’s exasperated mother who puts on a brave face when family and friends start gossiping about her daughter’s whereabouts.
Below watch the first clip from the film, ahead of its premiere Friday, April 20:
