      Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: C- Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Emanuel Levy Variety Made in the British tradition of quality, the film adds another panel to the revisionist history of women's roles in WWII--Women's Land Army (WLA), a unit composed of women who replaced men in the fields--Rachel Weisz is a major talent to watch. Rated: B Nov 15, 2006 Full Review Globe and Mail Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 25, 2003 Full Review Brandon Judell PopcornQ Rated: 4/5 Aug 30, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Jul 26, 2005 Full Review Andy Klein Los Angeles CityBeat Rated: 2/5 Jun 19, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member This show was horr. Surely women were not this ignorant and helpless. The men were not much better. Seriously the behavior of all involved wS deplorable. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Great acting but scripts treat viewers like idiots. The part I found most offensive was the the Home Guard sergeant who behaved like a police officer and/or an enlisted officer in his behaviour. Just nonsense. Home guard men were the last defense line in case of invasion. They didn't have the authority this script gives to Sergeant Whatsit. Also, Lord Hockley is a woos. Poor Nathaniel Parker! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I do like this film and it is good but it's not my usual type of film. It's very conventional and easy going, but you do get drawn into it and it's characters, who are very well acted. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved it. I watched this yesterday and could not look away. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member At first i went for Prue, before Stella's alroundedness took my fancy. Couldn't quite understand why any of these girls were competing for the love of a washy looking Ian Beale of a man. Stella and Joe didnt match Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member I love films about the home front during World War II, and this was a well-made drama about three land girls each with different aspirations. It was mostly feel-good, despite the presence of bombs exploding in the background. I did feel, however, that the characters could have been fleshed out a bit more as I didn't feel like I really got to know any of the girls that well.
