Review: Vacation From Marriage (1945)

Deborah Kerr and Robert Donat star in this WWII-era romantic drama with an unusual premise: a drab married couple blossoms when they’re separated by the war…and they like it that way!

A mousy married couple shuffles through their routine until each joins the war effort (he’s drafted, she becomes an army messenger) and their experiences transform them into more extroverted and interesting (not to mention attractive) people. After a lengthy separation, neither relishes a reunion with the dull stranger they left behind. Not your usual romanticized version of love during wartime. [***1/2 out of 5]
