During Britain’s darkest hour in the midst of the Blitz, the government sets out to produce a propaganda film to lift the nation’s spirits and entice America to its aid.
A secretary, Catrin, is recruited as a scriptwriter in order to provide a woman’s perspective. She along with her witty counterpart, Buckley, set out to make an epic portrayal of the Dunkirk rescue, starring a vain matinee idol.
Their Finest is a wonderfully acted work of warmth, grace and surprising humour.
(This film will be screened twice in Gibsons.)
Anchored by a superb Gemma Arterton, Their Finest is a funny, winning, beautifully acted ode to working women and cinema.
