(2020) (Kristin Scott Thomas, Sharon Horgan) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: Two wives of British officers serving in the war in Afghanistan vie for control of the women's choir they've created.
With the British involvement in the war in Afghanistan, it's time for the soldiers of Flitcroft military base to head off for a six-month tour, leaving their spouses behind. With her husband's recent promotion, Lisa (SHARON HORGAN) is now in charge of social activities for the wives at the base, all while trying to keep her 15-year-old daughter, Frankie (INDIA AMARTEIFIO), in line. But Kate (KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS), the wife of Richard (GREG WISE), the commanding officer, believes she needs to fill that need of coordinating social events.
When a knitting club goes nowhere, Kate takes the suggestion from young bride Sarah (AMY JAMES-KELLY) that they start a choir to keep themselves busy. While various women such as Annie (EMMA LOWNDES) and Maz (LAURA CHECKLEY) reluctantly agree to participate, tone-deaf hairdresser Ruby (LARA ROSSI) has no such reservations. But the real singer among the bunch is shy Jess (GABY FRENCH), and Kate and Lisa differ in their approach at making her and the rest into a true choir, with Kate preferring a rigid, classical approach, while Lisa is looser and has the ladies singing pop tunes.
With the women always concerned about their loved ones off in harm's way, they practice to become the best that they can, with a surprise performance awaiting them just around the corner.
