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.
PLOT:

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.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Some older teens might if they're fans of anyone in the cast or are into movies about choirs.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some strong language and sexual references.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
