Review: Glorious 39
period piece pleasesI enjoyed Garai's performance and the atmospheric swell of pre-war Britain. It's a place that still believed in itself. I would have liked a little bit more why, that is what motivated the characters of Nighy, et al., to do what they did re: appeasing Hitler. I thought the fate of the boyfriend was a bit over the top, but it certainly added to the suspense.
It is a decent way to spend a hot afternoon.
