We got to know some very courageous and candid military wives and the personal stories they shared were humbling.”
“As I started meeting real military wives, rich themes soon showed themselves: a fragmented group of people finding unity and camaraderie through song; women who are expected to “keep quiet and carry on” finding their voices.” Said Cattaneo.
“We got to know some very courageous and candid military wives and the personal stories they shared were humbling, sometimes harrowing, often hilarious.
“I was struck by their honest, down to earth sense of humour and I was determined to fill the film with this kind of comedy.”
Military Wives is released in the United Kingdom on Friday 6th March 2020.
