This hugely engaging, enormously moving film tells the true story of the first Military Wives choir. It hits all the right notes, with Dame Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan perfectly cast as two Army wives who propel a rather motley group of women all the way to the Royal Albert Hall. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The film centres 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.
