While not exacty up to contemporary standards of social realism this domestic saga was ground-breaking in its day and still captivates.

This Happy Breed is Noel Coward's proud and loving tribute to the unbreakable British backbone.

It's quite the study in domesticity and acceptance, and it even presents socialist activism and union strikes as some sort of idealistic fling...

This Happy Breed ranks with 1949's One Woman's Story and 1950's Madeleine as the most obscure title in David Lean's canon. That's a shame, because it's a wonderful motion picture.

not a particularly deep film, but it gets the details of human interaction and growth just right, providing a moving portrait of one family's durability in the midst of massive historical upheaval

If it doesn't bore you to death with its contrived melodramatics then maybe its decorative historical background might catch your interest.

A toff propagandist's England, of course. But once you've got over its peculiar patrician tones and bitty structure, there's much to enjoy.

Though Lean and Coward are less happy here than in the brittle, refined atmosphere of Brief Encounter, their adventurous excursion into suburban Clapham remains endlessly fascinating.
