It's 1908. The height of the British Empire. Good news for the Upper Classes and Merchant Ivory. Bad news for everyone else. Aunt Agnes is desperate to marry off her niece Emily to a respectable, proper, wealthy man with the right background, and Cedric seems the answer... except that Emily hates Cedric and Cedric may be more interested in her brother Edward... Whether you love or loathe British costume dramas, you will laugh at Gary Sinyor's clever spoof of the staid literary adaptation genre. A wonderfully nonsensical romance that is a rollicking send-up of period drama from Howards End and A Room With A View to Emma and Sense and Sensibility, STIFF UPPER LIPS stars some of Britain's most beloved actors.
