This is the same film as the BBC TV movie, "The Clothes In The Wardrobe", screened in Britain in 1993. With a title change, the film got a cinema release in the US, like other productions made by BBC Films in the same period, such as "Persuasion". See more »
You're supposed to wish the bride happiness.
Happiness? Good God! No one should ever expect happiness from marriage. A few quiet moments, perhaps, if one is lucky... and an occasional day that doesn't incite you to murder.

Lena Headley in this movie. I love this face but I am not sure it's hers. Maybe it's a face managed for the role, told to look this and that way and act the role. I love that face. Then I go and look at Lena Headley as in Wiki and images and elsewhere and it's a totally different face which I cannot relate to at all. The glamorous type a la carte. Nothing so special. Déjà vu. Tattoos? Hmm.
So it's possible, and it happened to me before, to get "carried off" by an actor in her role, never to see this face again.
Anyway, as a result, I must love this movie which presents this lovely face, and all the actor's inner world and outer problems in the film seem natural and logical to me. There are so many layers to this girl and that is quite special.
Very well acted all around.
