Their Finest

The spirit of the nation is in her hands.


Their Finest
Set during World War II, when London emptied of its men now fighting at the Front. A woman is hired by the British Ministry as a ’’slop’’ scriptwriter charged with bringing ’’a woman’s touch’’ to morale-boosting propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by a dashing movie producer whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. As bombs are dropping all around them, they and a colourful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although her artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is on-screen.
