"Gemma Arterton shines in a big-hearted and witty drama about the making of a second world war propaganda film. Bill Nighy does sterling work as a deliciously vain ageing star"
- Wendy Ide, The Observer

"Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy shine in a witty, sophisticated, feminist WWII romcom. The film is genuinely sweet and very funny and somehow Lone Scherfig never falls into any of the obvious traps"
- Tom Huddleston, Time Out

"Their Finest is a delight. Bill Nighy is brilliantly funny performance as vain, ageing thesp Ambrose Hilliard and Gemma Arterton is better than ever"
- David Sexton, Evening Standard

"Gemma Arterton is perfect as Mrs Catrin Cole, simultaneously luscious and reserved, and her battles in the writers’ room with the bespectacled Sam Claflin have a whiff of the screwball comedy of His Girl Friday"
- Kate Muir, The Times

"Anchored by a superb Gemma Arterton, Their Finest is a funny, winning, beautifully acted, handsomely mounted hymn to both valuing women and the power of cinema"
- Ian Freer, Empire

1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma 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 (Sam Claflin) and eccentric actor Ambrose Hilliard (Bill 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.

Their Finest, 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
