I’ll be the first to admit that when I saw a trailer in my inbox for yet ANOTHER World War II movie, I sighed a bit. However, after watching the trailer I’m quite excited to see the upcoming film Their Finest, based on the Lissa Evans novel of the same name. The film stars Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, and Bill Nighy.
Here’s the official synopsis:
With London emptied of its men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) is hired by the British Ministry of Information as a “slop” scriptwriter charged with bringing “a woman’s touch” to morale-boosting propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley (Sam Claflin) whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although Catrin’s artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.
