This seems to be Joan Fontaine's version of 'Love on the Dole' with Deborah Kerr. It's admirable that she wants to participate in the life of a former soldier who now ends up unemployed after the war. And to a certain degree it fits in with her image of being the devoted housewife who is loyal to her husband. But this is not how most women are, and that's why the film kind of drags its feet with a sense of unreality. There are a few films of this period that deal with unemployment, but it's depressing to watch. It doesn't make good entertainment, and the writer needs to find more creative ways to tell the story of unemployment after the war. The performances are good, but the handling of the subject matter is too linear.
