About the film

Actors: Kristin Scott Thomas, Sharon Horgan
The life of a military wife can be thankless. Separated from loved ones, their suffering and sacrifice go unnoticed while they live with the dread of a fateful knock on the door. It’s a mode of living that the uptight Kate knows all too well. When she and sceptical rebel Lisa persuade a ragtag group of women on the base to form the Military Wives Choir friendships flourish. Finding their voice together, the misfit choir put two fingers up to stuffy military tradition, anti-war protestors and their own personal differences.
Inspired by a true-life global phenomenon, Military Wives is a charming ballad to female unity. The luminous cast belts out pop hits and rock anthems, empowering everyone to overcome their fears together.
