The first trailer for Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest has hit. It’s a comedy, of sorts, set at a time when Britain stood alone against Nazi aggression. All we had was our spirit and a plucky screenwriter to try and get America to join the war.
THEIR FINEST, based on Lissa Evans’ novel, ‘Their Finest Hour and a Half’, is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war… and the movies.
1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered with fellow writer, Buckley, the pair, along with fading matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard, reluctantly joins forces on a movie to warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the US public.
