Their Finest Movie Review

Sometimes, in the unfortunate destruction and death that war inevitably brings, new opportunities arise for some groups have been previously marginalized.

In the new film, Their Finest, (based on the book Their Finest Hour And A Half by Lissa Evans) Catrin Cole (Gemma Arteron) is a copywriter who is hired to write women’s dialogue for propaganda films in World War II era England. As The Blitz continues on, she joins an unlikely team of filmmakers that includes aging actor Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy) and screenwriter Tom Buckley (Sam Claflin).

I wanted to like this movie, as I wanted to like the book. Unfortunately, I could not get very far into the book and as much as I wanted to like the movie, I found it to be merely eh. Even with the qualities of good writing, good acting, a story about writing and feminism, I was not as impressed as I thought I would be.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.

Their Finest is presently in theaters.
