Storyline

The last summer, shown in major flashbacks, dashing archaeologist Joseph (Luke Treadaway) has brilliantly flirted with upper middle-class girl Dolly Thatcham (Felicity Jones), delighting her cute naughty kid brother Jimmy (Ben Greaves-Neal) and even her headless younger sister Annie (Eva Traynor), yet antagonized their mother, stuck-up widow Mrs. Thatcham (Elizabeth McGovern). When bashful Dolly refused to accompany Joseph on a Greek excavation due to his commitment problems, she was afterwards sent on an Albanian holiday, met stuffy diplomat Owen (James Norton) and got engaged. At the wedding day, Dolly hesitated whether she was giving up on her best chance for happiness, and Joseph turned up, but the party guests and obligations kept getting in the way of actually talking it through.

Not better than watching paint dry
6 July 2014 | by ematersoSee all my reviews

Just before I sat down to watch this movie I had painted a floor. Watching that dry would have been more interesting. I continued to watch as an exercise in masochism.

Maybe because I find the lead actress very unpleasant. She drank way to much and pretty much continuously. Never did really get who all the other people were, yes, a sister and a mother. Was the vicar the father? An annoying missionary guest. Assorted friends? Relatives?

My two stars go to the person(s) responsible for the selection of the house, the costumer, the overall period look which is achieved very nicely, including hairdos.

The viewer certainly understands the main points of the story. They don't have to be re-told over and over again, in flashbacks and from different characters. If these were real people I would not wish any of them well.
