MILITARY WIVES centers on a group of women from different backgrounds whose partners are away serving in Afghanistan. Faced with their loved ones' absences, they come together to form the very first military wives choir, helping each other through some of life's most difficult moments, and quickly find themselves on an international stage. Peter Cattaneo (THE FULL MONTY) directs Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan in this feel-good crowd-pleaser inspired by true events.
“They’ll come out of Military Wives saying things like ‘Ooh, wasn’t it like Calendar Girls?’ and ‘Wasn’t that the chap who made The Full Monty?’ and be right on both scores.
Military Wives is very much that sort of British picture – funny, feelgood but with a generous dollop of heart-wringing emotion, too. If you manage to get through it without shedding a tear or two, you’re a better man than me.
It’s not high art (thank goodness, I hear some of you say), but this is still one of the must-see films of the year.” The Daily Mail
“A cheerfully treacly story of sisterhood, adversity overcome and music healing even the deepest wounds.” The Daily Telegraph (4 Stars)
