4/5 Stars

WHAT IT'S ABOUT:

With their partners away serving in Afghanistan, a group of women on the home front form a choir and quickly find themselves at the center of a media sensation and global movement.

WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:

Military Wives absolutely succeeds in what it sets out to do - which is, admittedly, not a particularly grand ambition, but that doesn't mean it's not a mark worth hitting. - Mary Sollosi, Entertainment Weekly

It benefits hugely from the casting of the ever-delightful Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan - their chalk and cheese is a perfect combination that holds interest in material that might have got a bit humdrum and schmalzy. - Brad Newsome, Sydney Morning Herald

It'll have you in your feelings, but this is still great entertainment that doesn't try to push too hard. - tt stern-enzi, WXIX-TV (Cincinnati, OH)

At a time when our world is drowning in uncertainty, Military Wives offers hope. It's the very definition of a feel-good movie. - Leonard Maltin, leonardmaltin.com
