Review: Military Wives passes muster as inspiring, feel-good flick
The new British film Military Wives is a refreshing change and was inspired by real events that led to the creation of choirs at military bases around the world. She steps on the toes of these women -- led by Sharon Horgan (Game Night) -- who are more interested in holding informal get-togethers featuring alcohol rather than structured events. Kristin Scott Thomas as Kate (right) and Sharon Horgan as Lisa in Military Wives (Aimee Spinks/Bleecker Street)The pushback begins early resulting in a gigantic battle of wills. Military Wives is ably directed by Peter Cattaneo, who back in 1997 made, The Full Monty, an unexpected worldwide hit about six unemployed British men who band together to put on a male-stripper show. Military Wives winds up being an entertaining, inspiring and feel-good movie thats worth checking out.
