The Best Years Of Our Lives

The Best Years Of Our LivesBBB

(out of 5)


This extremely popular wartime drama won the Best Picture Academy Award in 1946 but hasn’t really aged all that well.  It describes the life of a trio of soldiers after they’ve returned from World War II, centering mostly on Fredric March readjusting to life with his loving family headed up by wife Myrna Loy.  It wasn’t very often that war movies made during the second World War dealt with the home front, and for that the film is definitely on the film lovers’ must-see list.  It’s also somewhat slow and a lot of its more tender moments rather dated. Excellent acting, though, especially from March and a rare dramatic turn from the ever-luminous Loy.
