Time Out says

You don't have to be a woman to watch this documentary by National Film School students, but it certainly helps. Seven months spent sharing the experiences of the peace protesters at Greenham Common has produced a faithful picture, but rarely a compelling one. It is moving to witness the bleak conditions in which the women continue their fight, and solidarity has a way of making you want to participate in its victories. But protests get nowhere by being innocuous, and the film's virtue - it's unflinching honesty - brings about its defects: a bland directorial eye, an assumption that they have your sympathies, and if they don't, they're not worth having. To maintain its momentum, the peace movement needs to make constant inroads on the flagging public consciousness. SMac.
