Movie Info

Military Wives centers 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. Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty) directs Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan in this feel-good crowd-pleaser inspired by true events.

Critic Reviews for Military Wives

All Critics (119) | Top Critics (22)

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.

It'll have you in your feelings, but this is still great entertainment that doesn't try to push too hard...

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.

Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan do their best to elevate Military Wives from a simple tune to a symphony, but the notes just aren't there on the page.

No surprises await, but the performances by Scott Thomas, Horgan and company and some pleasant harmonizing make "Military Wives" palatable Memorial Day weekend viewing.

Though deeply reliant on formula and wrapped in a blanket of bland, this crowdpleaser about a choir of solders wives squeaks past the rough spots thanks to the acting alchemy of Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan
