During Britain’s darkest hour in the midst of the Blitz, the government sets out to produce a propaganda film to lift the nation’s spirits and entice America to its aid. A secretary, Catrin, is recruited as a scriptwriter in order to provide a woman’s perspective. She, along with her witty counterpart, Buckley, set out to make an epic portrayal of the Dunkirk rescue, starring a vain matinee idol (played to perfection by Bill Nighy). Their Finest is a wonderfully acted work of warmth, grace, and surprising humour.
