The 40s were pretty hard times for the world, so it was for america. Wyler's flick is not only technically respectable, but also contains pro-war propaganda, that tried to be supportive not only with the families that had some of his members at war, but also for the soldiers that were fighting. If you don't care pro-american way of life (of those times, at least), or... a filmmaker supporting the goverment, then watch it. If you have problems with all that, you will hate it.

If you like "The Diary of Anne Frank" you will like this one as they are similar in plot, the way the story is told and the characters. This film is focused more on a wealthier family rather than a poor full house. See it for reference.

Slightly dated but fine civilain war film

A fairly effective film in showing the harsh troubles the British civilians had to face form the Nazi's blitzkrieg. It shows that people do die from it but it is pro it incredibly which I do not mind because it is World War 2 after all and the Nazi's intent was to kill. It is fairly good, dated to a degree but still fine. It does not really get into who is attacking in terms of the Nazi's it stays really at home the whole time and it works well enough.

Oscar Nominee Best Actor Walter Pidgeon 2/5- There is not anything special about his performance here. He does not anything for anything really. He never seems to important to the story and the film and did not even notice him in the film that much. He is not bad at all just lacks anything notable about his performance.

Review - Mrs. Miniver (1942)

Mrs. Miniver (Greer Garson) and her family lived a quaint, middle-class life before World War II. When war breaks out, however, her entire family has to join the fight in one way or another in the Best Picture winning film “Mrs. Miniver.”

“Propoganda” is a word that sums up a majority of the film, but it's done through a believable and touching story. While they even made it so blatantly obvious as to sell war bonds on the last panel of the credits, the film as a whole works. That all being said, I didn't care for this movie all that much. I wanted to like it though. I really enjoyed the characters and the acting, but it never drew me in enough to hold me.

Garson gives a good performance, and I believe that she deserved the Oscar she got for it. There were also some cinematography t...
