Military Wives: the Cineworld Unlimited screening reactions are in

Placeholder image

Moving new comedy-drama Military Wives screened in advance for Cineworld Unlimited members, offering a special sneak peek at the new Kristin Scott Thomas-Sharon Horgan movie.

The film is directed by The Full Monty's Peter Cattaneo, and is a dramatised take on the formation of the UK's first military wives choir. Kristin Scott Thomas plays the somewhat prim Kate, who must work with her polar opposite, the bubbly Lisa, to form a voice choir for the spouses of the men serving in Afghanistan. They hope this will take the wives' minds off the situation, but learning to work together is a different matter entirely.

So what did Unlimited members make of the movie? We'll start with this from Emma @The Movies.

Jon says the movie is the ideal winter heartwarmer.

Neil says it's not just an emotional movie, but also an important one that reflects the realities of our armed forces, and their families.

Lynda says potential viewers need to pack a few hankies before going in.

Heidi says Military Wives will surely be featuring in her favourite films of the year.

And Jen says the movie was the best kind of surprise: not a film she was anticipating with any great excitement, but one that turned out to be emotional and funny.

Military Wives is released in Cineworld cinemas on the 6th of March. If you were at our Unlimited screening, tweet us your reactions @Cineworld and using #CineworldUnlimited.

Your next Cineworld Unlimited screening is Dark Waters, starring Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo as a crusading attorney in a powerful true story of legal corruption and environmental pollution. The film screens in advance on the 18th of February.
