Carousel 2019

A Rose Amid Thorns

I've been watching all the movies that received the Oscar for Best Picture. Next on my list was the 1942 winner, Mrs. Miniver, which also won for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Cinematography (Black and White), Best Director and Best Screenplay.

Directed by William Wyler, the film stars Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon as the heads of a British family during the German Blitz of World War II. I was surprised by how much I liked it, thanks to a well-crafted script, gorgeous cinematography, and skillful acting.
