Their Finest

London in the Blitz. Writer Catlin Cole (Gemma Arterton) gets a job at the Ministry of Information, and lands a role writing women’s dialogue (aka “slop” ) in a feature-length propaganda film about the Dunkirk evacuation. She has to battle against sexism and bureaucracy to be taken seriously. As well as the above, a film about making films, and about the role of women.

Nostalgic and patriotic, with some genuinely emotional moments. Convincing Welsh accent by Arterton.
