Their Finest (2016, UK, Dir. Lone Scherfig, 117 mins, Cert.12A)

Director: Lone Scherfig ● Starring: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Bill Nighy.

Facing a new demand for realistic Home Front movies, a London film studio hires copywriter Catrin (Arterton) to write the “slop” – industry slang for “girl talk” – and she proves a real talent. 

Soon she is working on a patriotic tale based on the Dunkirk evacuation, along with a narcissistic veteran star (Nighy) and a fellow screenwriter (Claflin) who is more appealing than her boorish husband.

With Arterton at the head of an excellent British cast, Their Finest is “a funny, winning, beautifully acted ode to working women and cinema” (Empire).

 With two showings at 2.30pm* and 7.30pm. 

*(Please note that the 2.30pm showing is subtitled for those with hearing loss).
