Their Finest: 2017 Underrated Films

Lone Schefrig, one of the most underestimated directors working today, has mostly made good films, without making a big deal of the fact that she is one of the most talented women behind the helm.
Her new serio comedy, Their Finest, is set in London in the crucial year of WWWII, 1940, when the British ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale at home.
Realizing their films could use “a woman’s touch,” the ministry hires Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) as a scriptwriter in charge of writing the female dialogue.
Although her artist husband looks down on her job, Catrin’s natural flair quickly gets her noticed by cynical, witty lead scriptwriter Buckley (Sam Claflin).
Catrin and Buckley set out to make an epic feature film based on the Dunkirk rescue starring the gloriously vain, former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard, played by Bill Nighy in a bravura, eccentric performance.
Bombs are dropping all around them, as the tenacious couple, Catrin and Buckley, and their colorful cast and crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation.
