Audience Reviews for Housewife, 49


Depressed and married to a stodgy husband, housewife Nella overcomes all problems as she throws herself into homefront volunteer work in England during the WWII. This made for TV film does not boast any great production values. All performances are good, as the British women do their bit to support the troops. This is not a bad film, but there is not much excitement in it, either. Just a nice, quiet little movie for a rainy day afternoon.
