ODEON says...
In London during the Blitz, ‘Their Finest’ follows Catrin as she joins a team trying to make a patriotic film that will help convince America to join the War.

She thought she’d applied to a secretarial job, but she’s actually helping to write scripts. Working with arrogant screenwriter Buckley and eccentric fading star Ambrose Hilliard, she’s tasked with making an inspiring film about the evacuation of Dunkirk. 

A moving story of persevering during the darkest hour of the Second World War, ‘Their Finest’ celebrates the art of filmmaking with a cast including Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Bill Nighy.

Life Affirming

Reviewer: Steve TDate: 2017-05-22

The film is beautifully shot, acted and written with authenticity and optimism.

Sweet and sad

Reviewer: Saint2Date: 2017-05-18

Really well crafted film with excellent casting and writing (well it should be!). Would go again except I know the story now. A real surprise, expected little and received a wonderful film. Love the special effects (joke!).

I loved this film! It had an old school Chariots of Fire quality to it. Funny and tremendously moving in places but not in a forced way and a gut wrenching twist that you may or may not see coming. Great story too. Highly recommend this one.

Not for me

Reviewer: Carol289Date: 2017-05-09

Very slow. Nearly fell asleep. Picked up in the second half but a flimsy story.
