Mrs Miniver is one of the best classic films in existence. It is a wonderful film with much sentiment and patriotism. Greer Garson, one of the finest "stars" of the 1940's, gives a gripping performance as the title character (and she won an Oscar for it to prove it). The most incredible thing about Mrs Miniver is that it is a WWII movie filmed during WWII, so the outcome of every thing was still unknown. It is even said that Mrs Miniver was one of Winston Churchill's favourite movies...it certainly is one of mine.

Sir Winston Churchill said that Mrs Miniver did more for the British war effort than a fleet of destroyers. Released in 1942 when America had not long entered world war 2, it showed the US public the desperate situation that Britain was in, and did much to strengthen the US ressolve to fight and win.

Greer Garson gives a fine oscar winning performance, as a housewife coping with the horrors of a war that was brought home to the civilian population. Her intelligence, natural charm and good humour made her the perfect choice for the role.

Greer was ably assisted by her co-stars. You have to forgive the dodgy English accents of her husband (Walter Pidgeon), her elder son (Richard Ney)and his sweetheart (Teresa Wright). It does not spoil their good work. Most of the other main players were Brits, including Dame May Whitty, who gives her usual flawless performance, and Mrs Miniver's two younger children. Her younger son in particular, stands out as perhaps the most likable precocious child on film.

This film has the power to entertain people who were born long after he war had ended. It is just the film to watch on a wet Sunday afternoon.

This is a remarkable film, especially when you think it was made in the early 40s and no one knew what the ultimate outcome of the war would be. Particularly poignant was the scene of the family in the Anderson shelter during an air raid. I watched it with my sister whilst on holiday in England, all these things happened over twenty years before we were born and it humbles you to think of the sacrifices that were made for us and how lightly we take our freedom. I wish more people of my generation could see this film.

Such was the power of this WW2 film that Greer Garson complained that she was forever more referred to as 'Mrs Miniver'.
This is the Americanised version of a middle-class English family, living in England, during the course of WW2. Strangely enough, the American accents do not detract from the storyline of the lives and loves of this English family complete with captured Germany pilot and 'little boats' to Dunkirk set pieces. However, it also contains much to show how people strived to carry on with the normalities of life, like the annual flower show!
It deals with subjects which have become virtually taboo in the England we know today ~ love of family, love of country, love of God and loyalty to all.
Yes, it is sentimental and cynics may even say idealistic BUT it contains truisms that remain as important today as when this country fought for its very existence against the tyranny of Nazi Germany.
There are wonderfully strong performances from all the cast both main and supporting roles and remains an absolute classic.

This movie is a "must have" classic. I would give it 10 Stars if I could.
It features bits of everything that was going on in UK during the early part of the war, the little boats to Dunkirk to rescue nearly 400'000 of our soldiers, the Battle of Britain, the Blitz etc., etc.
I should be scathing about the film, as being made in Hollywood, it has all the usual American characterisations of the Brits at war, but you overlook all that.
Good story, good acting and very enjoyable.
Churchill said that "Mrs. Miniver" did more for Britain's early war effort that a fleet of Destoyers would have.
Incidently, at the time of shooting, Greer Garson was having an affair with her on screen son, Richard Ney!

I have always loved this film, however, I have read in more than one biography of various actors, how Miss Garson would have her own cameraman, and made sure that wherever possible she would be filmed in closeup, that is quite evident in this film, in fact it was irritating, why not show the leading man occassionally in close up too ? he was rather nice looking, the film was very moving however and I would encourage people to purchase it.

It is hard to tell of the importance of this movie and skip the details. Yes the technical stuff may not be that interesting in a review like, after first choice Norma Shearer rejected the title role (as she refused to play a mother), Greer Garson was cast. The meat of the story is the action and interaction of family members. Add this to plausible plot twists and you come up with a movie that had a unique view of the sacrifices they endured during WWII. This is not some cardboard war propaganda film. So you do not think this review came off of some box cover, I would say to me the most moving sections were, the outcome of the Miniver Rose, unexpected war casualty, and of course as results the final church scene.
