Exploring a choir’s journey to the Royal Albert Hall, Military Wives is a sincere ode to the emotional power of singing out loud.


Inspired by the country’s first choir made up of military wives, made famous by the BBC, this British melodrama is determined not to leave a dry eye in the house. When most of their base is sent to Afghanistan, the sergeant’s wife Lisa (Sharon Horgan) is left in charge of organising activities for the other spouses and partners at home. Along with the colonel’s wife Kate (Kristin Scott Thomas) herself, determined to boost morale among the women even as she grieves the loss of her own son, hence they form a choir. Horgan and Scott Thomas’ comic chemistry is excellent, as they clash over how to lead the ensemble and the challenges of bringing harmony to the group both literally and figuratively. Sensitive to the struggles and triumphs these women undergo as they prepare for a public performance, director Peter Cattaneo called the film a celebration of “the emotional power of music, and the catharsis of singing together”. Predictable but heartwarming all the same (tissues). (research Rachel Williams) But strictly – no joining in…!
