THE PLOT THUS FAR
Comedy-drama about a group of British friends… the title says the rest.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Most of the action of the film takes place either at, or immediately before or after, one of the four church services mentioned in the title. The main character, Charles, is a well-to-do young man, probably educated at public school, and clearly a member of the professional classes, although we never actually discover what his job is. The film starts with a wedding at which Charles is best man to Angus, one of his old friends, and at which he meets Carrie, an attractive young American woman. The film then traces the ups and downs of the relationship of Charles and Carrie, via two more weddings (the second of which is Carrie’s own, after she and Charles have split up), the funeral of Gareth, another friend of Charles who suffers a heart attack while dancing at Carrie’s wedding, and one final marriage ceremony.
The Blu-Ray comes with commentary, deleted scenes and featurettes ported over from the Deluxe Edition DVD. But, it continues this new streak of MGM maxing out the bitrates for their transfers. I love seeing such crystal clear clarity on these older flicks. It’s worth a purchase.
