1940, London, the Blitz. With the country’s morale at stake, inexperienced screenwriter, Catrin (Gemma Arterton) and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the country’s flagging spirits and inspire America to join the war. Alongside fellow screenwriter, Buckley (Sam Claflin) and a gloriously egotistical actor, Ambrose (Bill Nighy) they set off to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation.
Based on the novel Their Finest Hour and a Half, Richard E. Grant, Jeremy Irons and Helen McCrory also star in THEIR FINEST – a witty, romantic and powerful portrayal of a young woman finding her voice amidst the mayhem of war…and the movies!
