Their Finest (12A)

Their Finest (12A)

Comedy, Drama, Romance

A British film crew attempts to boost morale during World War II by making a propaganda film after the Blitzkrieg.

The critical consensus

Anchored by a superb Gemma Arterton, Their Finest is a funny, winning, beautifully acted ode to working women and cinema.

****(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 18/04/2017

Some of the in-jokes begin to grate but the film has enough heart never simply to seem like a lampoon of wartime British cinema.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 19/04/2017

A honking, melodramatic nostalgia-fest.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 20/04/2017

Grows into something special, powered forward by Arterton’s charming central turn.

David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 20/04/2017

Lone Scherfig’s sweet-natured story is all about the love that flowers in the ruins of the blitz and the dusty offices of the Ministry of Information film unit.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 20/04/2017

Gemma Arterton shines in a big-hearted and witty drama about the making of a second world war propaganda film.
