A witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war… and the movies!
With London emptied of men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) lands herself a job writing copy for propaganda
films that need "a woman's touch". Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley (Sam Claflin) whose
path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. With the country's morale at stake, Catrin, Buckley and eccentric actor Ambrose
Hilliard (Bill Nighy) work furiously with a colourful crew to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. As bombs are dropping
all around them, Catrin discovers there is as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen. Based on the
2009 novel Their FInest Hour and a Half by Lissa Evans. (UK, 2016, 117 min., English, R, DCP | Dir. Lone Scherfig)
