Their Finest

Opens May 12, 2017

Director Lone Scherfig (An Education) returns with this winning wartime drama. World War II is underway, and to boost morale, the British Ministry of Information turns to propaganda films. They realize their current output is missing "a woman's touch," so they hire scriptwriter Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) to handle women's dialogue. Her work quickly impresses a colleague named Buckley (Sam Claflin). Catrin and Buckley embark on an epic feature based on the Dunkirk rescue. They gather a colorful crew, cast a former idol (Bill Nighy) in the leading role and attempt to inspire their nation.

"An unalloyed charmer. Their Finest has a buoyancy that lifts you." (Manohla Dargis, New York Times)
