A great picture.
April 13, 2021
By far the best picture of the month and high among the best of the year is this charming and appealing story of an English family during this world war.
April 13, 2021
For all its roses and frilly hats, Mrs. Miniver has a greater impact of reality than a dozen of some blood and thunder dramas. It's just that -- real.
April 13, 2021
Never has the screen more clearly demonstrated its ability to be powerfully articulate in the expression of human emotion or in the conveyance of the highest idealism in terms of utter simplicity than in M-G-M's beautiful production of Mrs. Miniver.
April 13, 2021
Cinema artistry of the higher sort transfers Miss Miniver to the screen in an absorbing human, and warm story of a family and the effects of war on their lives.
April 13, 2021
At last there has been born of this war a picture that justly merits the description of great -- a picture that bores to the heart with a devastating emotional appeal and a dramatic impact that tear your innards out.

It is simple and plain, sometimes deeply sentimental, sometimes oddly moving, and it will have a wide and prolonged appeal.
April 2, 2021
Mrs. Miniver is the most moving, sensitive, and inspirational film that has come out of the war yet in any country.

Its power is through suggestion. Its drama is conveyed with that fascination which Is inherent in a narrative told through induction, rather than obviously.
April 2, 2021
It's a pretty wonderful bit of cinema invention.
April 2, 2021
Never has there been a picture which pulses so strongly and so vibrantly of real, authentic life.
January 13, 2021
Atmospheric background with many scenes of beauty combine with able direction, sympathetic portrayals, and well designed plot to make Mrs. Miniver a strong contender for first place among the best pictures of the year.
August 13, 2020
It's a tragic yet hopeful portrayal of an engrossing character passing through one of the world's darkest times.

There is nothing left for the critic at this point but to corroborate all that has been said of it, to add his own warmest words of acclaim
January 22, 2020
Indirectly, the film is superb propaganda. Directly, it is absorbing, heart-shaking entertainment, in which a perfectly chosen cast appreciates every scene.
January 22, 2020
Mrs. Miniver is high-grade entertainment with a great appeal to national pride. But to claim-perhaps because of its subject matter-that it is the finest film in twenty-five years is but to perpetuate Hollywood's hyperbole and ignore past masterpieces.

What we are shown is a lived and felt reality in all its horrors. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 15, 2019
Mrs. Miniver eventually settles down to be a well-made and quite conventional war-film.
February 17, 2015
Under Sidney Franklin's watchful supervision and William Wyler's masterly direction the story has become the most stirring, heart-clutching picture of our times.
January 14, 2014
Mrs Miniver as a whole certainly is very silly sometimes... and yet, and yet. Sometimes through its sheer unselfconscious earnestness, it packs a punch.
