THEIR FINEST, based on Lissa Evans' novel, Their Finest Hour and a Half, is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war... and the movies.
1940, London, the Blitz; with the country's morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered with fellow writer, Buckley (Sam Claflin), the pair, along with fading matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), reluctantly joins forces on a movie to warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the US public.
THEIR FINEST, directed by Lone Scherfig, is set to open in the UK on 21 April 2017. Following a rapturous reception at the Toronto International Film Festival, its European premiere as the Mayor of London's Gala at the BFI London Film Festival, the film is soon to have its US premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.
