Their Finest, starring Gemma Arterton as Catrin, Sam Claflin as Buckley and Bill Nighy as Ambrose, is a romantic drama with a difference. Set in the 1940s, with London emptied of men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole lands herself a job writing copy for propaganda films that need ‘a woman’s touch’. Her natural flair catches the attention of screenwriter Buckley whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime.
With the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, Buckley and a colourful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin discovers there is as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.
Their Finest is a co-production between Number 9 Films and Wildgaze Films, led by producers Stephen Woolley (Carol, Made in Dagenham, Interview with the Vampire) Amanda Posey (Brooklyn, An Education). Based on the popular novel by Lissa Evans, it has been adapted for the screen by Gaby Chiappe and is being directed by Lone Scherfig (The Riot Club, One Day, An Education).
