Military wives, a film by Peter Cattaneo
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.
"This crowd-pleasing comedy drama from the director of The Full Monty hits all the right notes.I’ve seen Military Wives twice, and both times found myself crying like a baby at several key sequences."
"Feel-good underdog story hits all the expected notes. It’s twee and cheerful, but doesn’t disrespect the lived experiences it seeks to make light entertainment out of."
"THE FEEL-GOOD MOVIE OF THE YEAR! “Military Wives” is like that one friend of yours who’s always in a good mood and is forever lifting everyone’s spirits, even at somber occasions and during the toughest of times."
"Heartwarming emotions are balanced by some sharply acidic comic scenes mostly based around the oil and water skirmishes between uptight, upper crust Scott Thomas and a laidback, exasperated Horgan who are both on top form."
"The McQueen documentary tells the story of the people who carry his legacy."
