Mrs. Miniver is a memorable spirit-lifter about an idealized England that tends its prize-winning roses while confronting the terror of war. The "Best Picture" Oscar winner struck a patriotic chord with American audiences and became 1942's #1 box-office hit.
Greer Garson gives a formidable Oscar-winning performance in the title role, comforting children in a bomb shelter, capturing an enemy parachutist and delivering an inspirational portrait of stiff-upper-lip British resolve. When Hitler did his worst, Mrs. Miniver did her best.
