The last summer, shown in major flashbacks, dashing archaeologist Joseph has brilliantly flirted with upper middle-class girl Annie Thatcham, delighting her cute naughty kid brother Jimmy and even her headless sister Dolly, yet antagonized their mother, stuck-up widow Thatcham. When Annie bluntly refused to accompany him on a Greek excavation, she was sent on Albanian holiday, met stuffy diplomat Owen and got engaged. At the wedding day, the sisters realize she's giving up on her best chance for happiness, and Joseph turns up, but the party guests and obligations keep getting in the way of actually talking it trough.

Failed Downton Abbey Script
5 June 2013 | by (california) – See all my reviews

Because of the presence of Elizabeth McGovern and other similar traits of an early 20th century English estate family, this movie felt like a failed script for the TV program Downton Abbey. There was no particular compelling reason for this story to be greenlit in the manner it was produced except to take advantage of this similarity.

It's nice to see the subtle anti-romance character traits of the two leads play out over the narrative, but it's more curiously interesting than it is intensely interesting. The sophomoric foreshadowing and symbolism feel extremely contrived and almost insulting. The scenes that should be amusing are not amusing. The cleverish storytelling isn't clever enough to make you want to care about anyone or what happens to them. And the big reveal isn't at all revelatory, but serves more as a device to unlock the grand mystery of why these people behave the way they do. Sad to say, the mystery isn't all that grand and the viewer is left with the bad taste of being inexpertly manipulated.
