ReviewSource Crazy for Cinema
Review Mrs. Miniver is a rare war film, one that focuses on those left at home and their struggle to survive the onslaught of the enemy and the anxiety of impending loss. The story centers on the Minivers, a middle-class British family, during the early years of WWII. The battle against the Nazis becomes more than a mere topic of conversation when they are forced to confront the hard realities of this ever-growing conflict. Not only do they lose beloved friends to the draft, but their eldest son Vin (Ney) enlists as well, desperate to do his part for the cause. As if worrying about his safe return wasn't enough for Kay (Garson) to deal with, at night their small village is used for target practice by the highly destructive German Luftwaffe...After watching many films made during the early 1940's -- which were all attempting to drum up support for the war -- Mrs. Miniver is one of the best of its genre, telling an even-handed, complex story despite its propagandist backbone. Unlike most of its contemporaries, the ideas and emotions captured within this film are just as viable today as they were 60 years ago, which is a remarkably sad thought. You'd think the human race would have learned. A powerful reminder of the toll even just wars exact on our world.
