ODEON says...
In London during the Blitz, ‘Their Finest’ follows Catrin as she joins a team trying to make a patriotic film that will help convince America to join the War.

She thought she’d applied to a secretarial job, but she’s actually helping to write scripts. Working with arrogant screenwriter Buckley and eccentric fading star Ambrose Hilliard, she’s tasked with making an inspiring film about the evacuation of Dunkirk. 

A moving story of persevering during the darkest hour of the Second World War, ‘Their Finest’ celebrates the art of filmmaking with a cast including Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Bill Nighy.

Nice enough, Bill Nighy always good but the story was strangely lame, very lightweight and a bit pointless. I like the wartime era setting but really forgettable film.

WW2 + Dramedy

Reviewer: Seb SandfordDate: 2017-04-21

I thought the movie was interesting to watch. WW2 is one of those subjects in history classes, and making a film about Dunkirk is a good thing. My grandmother, back in Canada, is sure to find this film interesting as well. Here's to WW2 + dramedies.
