A feel-good film! It is a film that will make you laugh plus also cry. I did find it very moving in parts. I love Kristin Scott Thomas and think she is amazing. I have enjoyed everything that she has been in. I am not really that familiar with Sharon Horgan, but again thought she was brilliant. In this film we have two really strong female leads. I thought that the script was well written and focused a lot about what it must be like for these military wives to be at home waiting and also what it must be like for the men also who go out to fight. Also very well directed by Peter Cannaneo who directed the film The Full Monty (1997). This choir was the first Military Wives choir of 75 such choirs across the UK to be set up.
