Storyline

At the beginning of WWII, Virginia is sent to America by her parents to keep her safe. Now the war in Europe is over, it's time for Virginia (or Rusty, as she likes to be called) to come home. While she is glad to see her mother Peggy and tries to fit into her old life, her 'American ways' don't go down too well at home. When her father returns from war, he is desperate to have his life just the same as it was before, but he is forced to realise that his wife and his children are not the same people he left behind.

Quotes

Mrs. Dickinson: [outraged at the sound of Peggy and Roger arguing] What on earth's going on?
Peggy Dickinson: We're leaving. Not that it's any of *your* business.
Mrs. Dickinson: [taunting Peggy] So, off back to Devon, are we? I'd have thought that most of the Americans would have gone back home by now. I never even *looked* at another man after my Alfred has shot down.
Peggy Dickinson: I don't think your Alfred *was* shot down, at all. I reckon he crashed that plane rather than come home to you.

Not bad, but disappointing.
2 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

After having read the book by Michelle Magorian, which is engaging and of interest, as all of her books are, this make was very disappointing. Nothing seemed to fit well in terms of the plot, it was unfocused, and major storylines had been left out as the book progressed. There was very good acting, especially from Stephanie Cole, Sarah Lancashire, and newcomer Jessica Fox, but it is by no means up to scratch on Goodnight Mr. Tom. That was much better directed and was a far more convincing adaptation. For all its faults however, it kept me going to the end, and was enjoyable. Wouldn't watch it again, though I would like to see the earlier version to compare.

6 out of 10 (That's generous).
