Set within the milieu of Britian’s wartime film industry, this stirring and delightful new film from An Education director Lone Scherfig follows a screenwriter (Gemma Arterton) who experiences both an emotional blitzkrieg and unexpected liberation while shooting on location for the British Ministry of Information’s Film Division.
Based on the novel by Lissa Evans, Their Finest is deeply satisfying and utterly entertaining. It boasts a marvelous cast that includes Bill Nighy, Richard E. Grant and Jeremy Irons, yet its richest, subtlest, most moving performance comes from Arterton, who imbues her inspiring heroine with vulnerability and grace.
This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s Jordan Ressler Screenwriting Competition and the Cinema 360º Film Categories
Our Marquee presentation screening of Their Finest will be preceded by an extended onstage conversation with director Lone Scherfig.
