Like a favorite song you know by heart, Military Wives offers few surprises — but its pleasures are no less formidable for their familiarity.
Critics Consensus, Rotten Tomatoes
Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (Darkest Hour) leads this comedic story based on the real-life phenomena of military wives forming a choir while their partners serve in Afghanistan, leading to a media sensation. From the Oscar-nominated director of The Full Monty.
I could use a lot more movies with as big of hearts as this one, especially ones that remind us all of the power of a strong group of diverse women
balances pathos with humor
