Every good movie needs “optimism, authenticity, and a dog”, and that’s exactly what you are going to get.
Set in war-torn London of 1940, Their Finest tells the story of hope, spirit, romance, and tragedy in the new British drama.
To combat the constant onset of disaster and carnage brought about by World War II, the government employs Propagandist to write the plots for heroic war movies.
Catrin Cole, portrayed by Gemma Arterton, is hired by the Ministry of Film to create the female perspective in propaganda pictures. Yet, no one expects her fresh perspective in screen writing, least of all her producer, Buckley played by Sam Claflin.
The two battle the government, aged, yet beloved actors, and time as they use the evolution of film to create peace in times of turmoil and death.
Gemma Arterton gives the movie wit, with spitfire attitude. Her love of stories and vivid imagery may get her in a little trouble, but it sure does add a refreshing take on a world dominated by men. She is ingenious alongside fellow cast members Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy, and Jack Huston. Come see a story marked by misfortune, but defined by hope.
Their Finest is a humorous, yet heartbreaking portrayal that reminds audiences to take hold of every opportunity, even the ones you least expect. The movie hits American theaters April 7th.
