About the film

Lone Scherfig directs this romantic comedy, ‘Their Finest’. Set in Britain’s wartime film industry, the film features a cast full of the UK’s celebrated comic actors including Bill Nighy and Richard E. Grant. Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) is a scriptwriter charged with bringing a female perspective to war films produced by the Ministry of Information’s Film Division. Catrin’s artist husband looks down on her job despite the fact that it is paying the rent.

While on location in Devon, Catrin begins to come into her own when she becomes the only crew person that Ambrose Hilliard (Nighy) – a past-his-prime actor – will talk to and take direction from. The film pops with witty banter and flows with lovely period detail while the characters are textured and the performances nuanced. Nighy is perfectly cast in his endearingly withering role and Jeremy Irons turns up for a welcome cameo. However, Arterton steals the show, bringing subtlety, intelligence and a range of emotions to Catrin, whose path to self-renewal is an example of a talented woman forging her place in the world.
