1940, London, the Blitz. With the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, an untried screenwriter is hired to provide "a woman’s touch" and, with a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits. Along with fellow screenwriter Buckley, and eccentric former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard, the trio set out to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Based on Lissa Evans’ novel, Their Finest Hour and a Half, this is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and voice, in the mayhem of war and the movies!
‘Gemma Arterton shines in a big hearted and witty drama about the making of a Second World War propaganda film.’ Wendy Ide, The Guardian
