    Overview

    Summary
    Mrs. Miniver dramatizes the effect of the Second World War on the English at home. Mrs. Kay Miniver's tranquil domestic existence is torn to shreds by the winds of war. Her husband Clem disappears on a secret volunteer mission, eldest son Vin joins the RAF, and the village faces regular German bombings with a typically British stiff upper-lip. Embodying understated British courage in the face of danger, Mrs. Miniver's mission is to stay alive, and keep her family together with hope, strength, and dignity.
