This movie won all the Oscars. So I approached this with some scepticism.
But it’s irresistibly charming. The actors playing the Minivers are absolutely wonderful, but there are some variable performances otherwise. The plot’s not quite what I expected, either…
Still, I don’t think this is quite as good as Wyler’s previous movie The Little Foxes. It’s still plenty great and very touching.
Mrs. Miniver. William Wyler. 1942.
