Their Finest – B+

April 16th, 2017 · No Comments · movies

Ellen and I went to see Their Finest today and enjoyed it quite a bit.

The movie is set in 1940 London and tells the story of create a film to glorify the rescue at Dunkirk both to encourage the British homefront and also to show America that they should get into the war in support of Britain. The central character in the film is Catrin Cole, played winningly by Gemma Arterton, who is hired to write the “slops”, the women’s movie dialog. She works with  a cynical lead writer, Tom Buckley, played by Sam Claflin. Bill Nighy is wonderful as an aging egotistical former movie star.

Perhaps more about movie making than any historical insights, the film is wonderfully done and enjoyable to see. On the Dan’s tear-meter, it was worth a tear or two toward the end as we see the results of all of the efforts that went into making the resulting film within a film.
