The perfect choral movie fundraiser

NZCF has had advance notice of an upcoming movie release we’re sure will appeal to our members and would provide the ideal opportunity for a choir fundraiser!

Military Wives is directed by Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty) and stars Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan in an inspiring drama about ordinary women in extremely testing circumstances, who find courage in the cathartic power of singing together.

Inspired by the real-life global phenomenon, Military Wives tells the story of Kate (Kristin Scott Thomas), who finds freedom in song and persuades a ragtag group of women on the base to form the Military Wives Choir. Finding their voice together, the misfit choir members turn their backs on stuffy military tradition, anti-war protesters and their own personal differences. As friendships flourish, even the sceptical rebel and rocker Lisa (Sharon Horgan), is transformed by the choir’s friendship, humour and courage.

Military Wives is due for release in New Zealand cinemas on 12 March 2020. Download a list of cinemas where it will be screened, with contact numbers alongside so you can organise your next choir fundraiser!
