Critic Reviews for Sea Wife

All Critics (1)

Sea Wife is one of those turgid and morose melodramas that were inexplicably popular in the post-Second World War period.

Audience Reviews for Sea Wife

Pointless semi romance. The cast is set adrift in a raft and the movie just sort of drifts with them. Burton and Joan try but it's all just meaningless.
