1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered alongside fellow screenwriter, Buckley ( Claflin) and eccentric actor Ambrose Hilliard (Nighy), the trio set off to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the American population.
Based on Lissa Evans’ novel, Their Finest Hour And A Half, is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war and the movies!
