That is what this film is about , World War II And it's affects it has on a family when a loved one goes away for a long period of time.
Goldie Hawn is superb as is Christine Lahti and Kurt Russell the three stars of the film , Well Acted by all ............
Also Look for a rather young Ed Harris as Goldie's Husband who goes off to war and Holly Hunter as Her Co-Worker in the Aviation Factory . Also a Great Score By Carly Simon singing the main title song .
