My Review:

Dame Judy Densch has the title role. The movie is based on the true story of a widow who bought an old theatre house in London during World War 1 and turned the place into a refuge for young soldiers. The shows weren’t just “girly” shows, they were uplifting and inspiring to these guys who saw battle every day. It’s a great story, with a strong cast. Wonderful costumes. Yes, some naked girls… and men, too! So if you’re sensitive to that beware! But it’s all done very tastefully and with a sense of humor. Fun movie worth seeing.
