British Home front movie?

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone recall a movie about families living on the rivers and canals in England during the second world war. I don't recall any of the actors, in fact I don't recall a great deal about the movie except the feel was very uplifting. Every time I think about it I watch Mrs. Miniver and that is not it. The families band together, I think the main family moves from their home in the city to their river home for safety while dad is away fighting making for a reunion scene in the end??

I think I recall that movie too, at least the discription rings a bell, but I cannot recall the title or any actors in it.

mymigraine, I think the movie you are refering to is John Boorman's semi-autobiographical movie 'Hope and Glory' from 1987. In the latter part of the movie the family move from their burned-out home in a London suburb to the 'Grandparents' house in the country. The house is on the bank of a river.
