51 of 54 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 21, 2011
Format: DVD
Though there have been books and other films that deal with the dissidence between the aristocrats and the general populace of England around the topic of WW II, this beautifully executed 'historical thriller' brings many aspects of those discrepancies of opinion to light in a manner not unlike the similar thought processes in Germany at the same time: the gentry of Germany turned a blind eye to the events surrounding them (The Final Solution) in order to believe in what they chose to believe as a promise for stabilization and world importance as a genteel country. Writer/Director Stephen Poliakoff has based his examination of this problem on focusing on the life of one particular character whose fate was the standard of the dispossessed.

The year is 1939 and the aristocratic family of Sir Alexander Keyes (Bill Nighy) and his wife Maud (Jenny Agutter) are living what seems to be an idyllic life with their children Ralph (Eddie Redmayne), Celia (Juno Temple) and the eldest, Anne (Romula Garai) who we soon discover was adopted before the Keyes discovered they could bear children on their own. Anne is a beautiful creative actress who seems to make the family proud. The family is visited by an old friend Hector (David Tennant) who at dinner is very vocal about the fact that Hitler is a threat to England and that England must stop Hitler before he destroys them instead of pursuing a course of appeasement of Hitler that would prevent disturbance of their elegant way of life on the island of Britain.

Format: Blu-ray
"Glorious 39," set in England in the summer of 1939, tells about Anne Keyes (Romola Garai), an attractive young woman who is enjoying modest success as a film actress. She is the adopted daughter of Alexander Keyes (Bill Nighy), a career politician and member of Parliament. Anne still lives in the family home with her father, mother Maud (Jenny Agutter), diplomat brother Ralph, and socialite sister Celia.

One of Alexander's friends stops by for dinner and during a tempestuous conversation expresses his disapproval of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and his efforts to appease Hitler's Nazi regime. Anne begins to suspect a conspiracy is afoot when she finds a set of phonograph records that document conversations of men discussing state intelligence secrets. When Anne tries to share her discovery with others, they're soon found dead.

The plot is fascinating and fresh. It deals with a group of Brits convinced that England could not possibly prevail against Germany and who use every means from political influence to devious machinations to keep England out of war. This historical background blends nicely into a suspense thriller when bodies start piling up. It contains excellent performances and crisp direction by Stephen Poliakoff, who helmed many dramas for the BBC.

There are no bonus extras.

14 of 16 people found the following review helpful By hawthorne wood on February 29, 2012
Format: DVD
This was a gorgeous, well-acted, well-crafted WWII thriller with a unique and rarely-addressed theme: the active role of the appeasement underground. From what I have seen here, some in this group (whole aristocratic families, in fact) were evil to the point of murdering those who disagreed with them. Why was this film not seen widely, and why are there are (at least on the jacket) no reviews whatsoever? Perhaps it is a shameful chapter in British history - "dirty laundry" some want buried? I find it peculiar in light of the fact that the cast is magnificent, the photography gorgeous and the plot line totally absorbing. Something's rotten in Denmark.

After finding secret pro-appeasment (for the Nazis) recordings Anne (Garai) becomes involved in a secret, violent conspiracy, set in England in 1939. After one of her friends who speaks out against Hitler is found dead, Anne begins to dig deeper into the reasons for his death. This is a very interesting movie. It is both compelling and slow moving. It is tense but it drags in spots. It kept me watching but my mind did wander a bit. This is overall a good movie but you need to be in the mood for it. You really feel for Anne and the way her life begins to fall apart. I am a fan of historical movies so I really liked that aspect of it. This movie had the feel of a made-for-TV movie, although it would have been an HBO movie with the quality of it. I recommend this but again, it's not for everyone, and you need to be in the mood to watch a movie like this one. I give it a B-.

Would I watch again? - Probably not

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Cat W. on January 2, 2013
Format: DVD
I think what most people are missing is the excellent acting by Romola Garai. I watched it for that more than anything. Plus I found the film and the plot to be nicely surreal as it was and unclear in places - almost dreamlike for the nightmare scenario that it presents for every character, especially for Romola's character. Sure, things seem a bit disjointed and may beg for more fiber, but if you like British movies with all the set and setting and lovely
scenery, you will like it for this as well. I thought the film over all was artistically creepy and I enjoyed that very much. But it comes together well enough to make sense in the end, sort of...which is also what I liked.
