This slice-of-life film showed one British family's daily life on the eve of World War II and after the bombing of England started. The Miniver family live a comfortable, if conventional life in rural England. Mrs. Miniver (Garson) is a cheery, good natured neighbor, understanding wife and excellent mother. The family is splintered by war, yet remains close in heart. Their son enlists in the Royal Air Force and hurriedly marries his sweetheart. Clem Miniver (Pidegon) is among those civilians enlisted to take their small boats to help with the Allied evacuations at Dunkirk. Mrs. Miniver and her son find a wounded Nazi pilot on their doorstep and must decide what they should do. Through it all, the film speaks to the resilience and morale on the British home front and how the people continued to take solace in tradition, even something as seemingly simple as the local rose show. Based the novel by Jan Struther.
