The plight of wartime refugees has rarely if ever looked so picture-postcard perfect as it does in this well-intentioned but ultimately plodding and far too painterly period melodrama.

"Come What May" is a paint-by-numbers account of a real-life World War II event, the displacement of eight million people from their homes in France.
