THEIR FINEST (Cert 12A)
Dir Lone Scherfig UK 2017 117 mins
This British romantic comedy drama, starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Bill Nighy, is set during World War II while London is under sustained attack during the Blitz. Young Welsh copywriter Catrin Cole, played by Gemma Arterton, is employed by the British Ministry of Information to bring a female perspective to their latest propaganda film aimed at raising the morale of the British people.
Catrin is assigned to co-write a project based around the Battle of Dunkirk, and has to contend with the sexist attitudes of fellow screenwriter Tom Buckley (Claflin) and pompous actor Ambrose Hilliard (Nighy) as she attempts to put the film together. The cast also includes Richard E. Grant, Eddie Marsan and Jeremy Irons.
