A deeply-felt–and provocative–note from a reader:
“Do have a box of Kleenex handy for the end of Mrs. Miniver! This truly is one of the best movies ever made, about an idealized England / The West that perhaps never was, but the ideals of a people tell us everything about the culture. A film like Mrs. Miniver could never be made in a Mohammedan country.”
The ideals tell us everything about the culture. Very, very nice.
