Rusty Dickinson (Jessica Fox) was evacuated to America in the early days of the Second World War. Now it is five years later, the war is over, and Rusty is returning home. Her mother Peggy (Sarah Lancashire) comes to meet her at the docks, eager to see her darling daughter once again. But the years of upheaval have brought about many changes in all concerned - especially with Rusty's new-fangled American ways - and it will take a while before the Dickinsons adapt to each other again.

Format: DVD
I didnt exactly have any high hopes when I started watching this. In fact I thought it was a childrens movie and the only reason I wanted to see it was because Sarah Lancashire is in it and shes according to me one of the best actresses ever.

Now I've never read the book so I cant speak for it BUT this is no childrens movie. Not that young people cant watch it I just think you have to be a little older to apperciate it.

This movie is about england after World War Two,or at least in the end of it. Its about how hard it was for the children to come back home when they'd been living in America for years and for the men coming back to their wifes who had changed some...

The family in this story decided to ship their daughter of to the States when she was 9 years old. Shes now coming home to a mother she doesnt really know and to a little brother shes never seen.Not only does she feel left out she also feels more american than english and she talkes of her american family as home which doesnt help her in the relationship with her mother much....

It gets more intresting when the father gets back. His wife Peggy played brilliand by Sarah Lancashire has worked, taken care of the house, made new friends and learnt new things since the husband left and he cant really take that. Decpide of the war you get a feeling that Peggy's been happy and kinda found herself and just when she has learnt how to be by herself her husband gets back and he has of course changed to...

I want tell you more cus that destroyes the movie but I loved this drama! It was well played and intresting and it made me think. I really recommend it to anyone looking for a story that stayes with you after you've seen it.

Back Home was one of my favourite books as a child and after re-reading it recently, I was keen to see the TV film version with Sarah Lancashire. It does not all follow the book narrative - there are a lot of changes from the book but I expected this as films never seem to keep well to the books they are based on. However if you can get over that, and just watch it as a film in its own right, then it is a great sunday afternoon film! very heartwarming!

Format: DVD
Interesting piece of drama. well acted and at times heartbreaking, especially seeing relationships form and break and form again. good piece of wartime drama if anything. one criticism however: Back Home never seems to know its audience. Children and teens it could be aimed at yes, as there's a lot that they can relate to. But for adults, at whom this is also aimed at, being broadcast after the kiddies' watershed time, may find the children's story irratating and flat. However, well acted, directed and well scripted. Worth a look.
