Dir: Peter Cattaneo, UK, 2020, 112 min. Kristin Scott Thomas, Sharon Horgan, Jason Flemyng

“Two great actresses go to war in this emotional and thoroughly British feelgood ­comedy drama from Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty). Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan play the combative mother hens scratching out battle lines as they struggle to put an all-women amateur choir through singing boot camp. They’re attempting to boost morale while their soldier spouses are on a six-month tour of Afghanistan. But squabbling, stage fright and a betrayal of a confidence threatens their prestigious appearance at the Royal Albert Hall in a Remembrance Day concert…  Scott Thomas brings sharp edges and shifting emotional layers as a posh and pushy busybody who hides her inner grief by bullying the women into shape. And this brings her into conflict with Horgan, who’s popular among the women for her more relaxed approach to the training. Inspired by a true story… there’s plenty of cross-generational appeal and a cast representative of every corner of the British Isles. Mercifully the script doesn’t shy away from the men risking their lives for their country, which gives depth to the drama and the songs, and is surprisingly affecting.” – Chris Hunneysett, The Daily Mirror
