Anchored by a superb Gemma Arterton, Their Finest is a funny, winning, beautifully acted ode to working women and cinema.
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.
A honking, melodramatic nostalgia-fest.
Grows into something special, powered forward by Arterton’s charming central turn.
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.
Gemma Arterton shines in a big-hearted and witty drama about the making of a second world war propaganda film.
