Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy, Jack Huston.
Set in a WWII London populated by the women, old men and children who remained at home, 'Their Finest' is a witty and thoughtful wartime charmer from Lone Scherfig ('An Education') with a screenplay based on Lissa Evans' novel 'Their Finest Hour and a Half'. Young Welsh woman Catrin (Gemma Arterton) lands a job writing dialogue for propaganda filmmakers looking for "a woman's touch". Crossing paths (and swords) with dashing producer Tom Buckley (Sam Claflin) and eccentric old thesp Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy, on top form) as bombs drop all around them, Catrin discovers there's just as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is on-screen.
