During the Second World War, Britain's women were asked to help out the farming industry by joining The Women's Land Army (The Land Girls). Three city gals make their way to the Lawrence farm in Dorset, and find themselves taking to the work easily enough. The only problem between them is each want young Joe (Steven Mackintosh) for their own reasons. Ag (Anna Friel) is the fiery sort who'll take pleasure where she finds it; Prue (Rachel Wiesz) just wants a lesson in the ways of the world; while Stella (Catherine McCormack) is looking for a way out of the private trap she's set in motion back home, but her feelings are the most sincere of the bunch. The film is Stella's story really (as adapted from the novel by Angela Huth), and has her affecting the on-off decision by Joe to join the RAF, the fight with the government to keep the East Meadow as it is and the paths the two other girls end up taking. Everything is very sweet-natured, especially when played out against a backdrop of rolling green hills, chuffing steam engines and knee-high socks tucked into Wellington boots. There's no comment on the effects of war as such, instead this film is more about the reasons why we make choices in life. --Paul Tonks

Product Description

Whilst the men are sent abroad to battle against Hitler's army, England's women are left to do their bit on the homefront. In 1944, three young women - Stella (Catherine McCormack), Ag (Rachel Weisz) and Prue (Anna Friel) - are sent to work on a Dorset farm, where they are forced into an accelerated learning process, with thoughts of the war never far away.

Gently written and directed, this is a pleasing romantic tale with a lot of scenery and some good acting. It isn't action packed, nor does it present anything new to us really even if there haven't been any movies about the ww2 land girls before. But it paints an accurate picture of the period while telling a rather obvious tale of love between two who would never have met if it wasn't for the war. Gentle, subtle, pretty little film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Land Girls Forever 4 Dec 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This film is brilliant. Anna Friel is excellent, very funny and plays her part really well. Each of the characters are so very likeable. There are quite a lot of funny scenes in it but also some real heart breaking stuff (i cried one minute and laughed the next!), which i feel portrays the ups and downs of the second world war extremely well.
It is a gentle and emotional film and the countryside scenery is breathtaking . If you like good old fashioned English films, you will find this very entertaining.

4.0 out of 5 stars The story was great but ................. 14 Mar 2013

The story of "The Land Girls" was excellant and we thoughly enjoyed it despite a couple of bits when the DVD froze and we had to push it forward to the next clear part. We had nearly finished the film and were in the last 5 minutes when it stopped and despite trying everything I knew and trying to watch it on 3 different machines including a games console that plays nearly anything there was no way we could watch the end of the film.
To be fair, after we complained the cost of the DVD was refunded straight away and the service was excellent but we still want to know how it ended????

4.0 out of 5 stars Wartime romp on English Soil 23 Feb 2013

Recently visited the little Church of Riddington, set in a field on Exmoor. Lovely location of the Church used in this film, so we thought we'd like to watch it again. Strange, but a new DVD of this old film is an 'arm and a leg' , so bought this second hand. Good condition and works fine. Good to see the film, Church and West Somerset Railway again.
