Gemma Arterton Raises Wartime Spirits In First Trailer For THEIR FINEST

First trailer for director Lone Scherfig's WWII comedy drama.






One of a dozen or so 2017 movies set during WWII, Their Finest stars Gemma Arterton as a screenwriter attempting to make a movie designed to lift the wartime morale of the British public. Directed by An Education's Lone Scherfig, Their Finest is in UK/ROI cinemas April 21st.


The official synopsis reads:

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 with fellow writer, Buckley (Sam Claflin), the pair, along with fading matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), reluctantly joins forces on a movie to warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the US public.
