Product Description

Four remarkable women fight their own battles whilst thousands of miles away their loved ones risk life and limb in war torn Afghanistan. Homefront looks at a much reported story from a much neglected angle and reveals the lives of the women behind the headlines; lives overflowing with drama and conflict, humour and heartache, secrets and surprises.

A fantastic ensemble cast: Claire Skinner (Outnumbered, Doctor Who) Clare Higgins (Parade's End, The Syndicate, The Golden Compass) Nicola Stephenson (The Chase, Clocking Off) Antonia Thomas (Misfits, The Deep) Warren Brown (Good Cop, Luther) Greg Wise (Sense and Sensibility, Cranford) and George Costigan (Rita Sue and Bob Too, Doctor Who) alongside Emmy award winning lead director Terry McDonough (Breaking Bad, The Street) deliver big emotional stories told through four compelling women.

Includes 6 episodes on 2 discs.

From Amazon.co.uk

A thought-provoking, engaging and very human series, Homefront is a war story with a difference. Rather than focussing on the troops heading off into battle, Homefront instead spends its time with those left behind. As such, it’s the story of four women, each of whom is dreading a knock at the door, for fear of the news it will deliver.

Yet Homefront is not a melancholy show, rather an emotional, dramatic one. It spends a lot of time offering different perspectives, and some of the writing is really exceptionally strong. Furthermore, the cast of the programme is excellent. It’s an ensemble drama, played with diligence and skill by the likes of Claire Skinner, Antonia Thomas and Nicola Stephenson. Each character, as you’d hope, faces challenges of their own, but they’re unified by the looming threat of what’s going on in Afghanistan.

Managing its tonal shifts, and there are quite a few, particularly well, there’s the odd moment of gloss that feels a little out of place in Homefront. However, this is still compelling drama, spread across six episodes, that leave you more than open to the idea of spending further time with these characters. Homefront is interesting, just a little bit brave, and worth seeking out. --Jon Foster

This is like a modern version of Soldier Soldier, bought nicely up to date with some very good performances from the cast and the promise of future seasons that will continue to deal with "gritty" issues faced by military families.

An excellent drama in it's own right, with good performances and writing.

A good deal at this price.
