Good movie about people who make good movies.

It's a movie within a movie. I feel in general, a movie about movies is a good topic for a movie. People love to hear stories about how the movies works. I know personally I'm a sucker for this type of drama.

Based on a book called Their Finest Hour and a Half, which I think is a better title, Their Finest stars Gemma Arterton in a movie that takes place during World War 2 in England, when women join the workforce in order keep the world going that was coming to a halt do to the Blitzkrieg. In this case Arterton's character Catrin Cole, a woman working for a newspaper that leads to an opportunity to write a screenplay for a movie.

What I like about the movie is that it's a funny story about how a screenplay is created. They basically hired Catrin Cole to tell the story of the war from a women's perspective, namely the true story of a pair of twins who attempted to use their boat to help rescue soldiers in France, but the true story is not good enough propaganda to get the citizens of Britain into the cause, so she has to embellish what happen.

As the writing progressed, they keep getting stopped by someone, weather it was the producer or The Secretary of War to add new things so that they can appeal to the masses, a very interesting process made hilarious by the movie.

The whole film is a satire on the film industry of 1940s Great Britain that's still true today. Their Finest also has some romance in it, as Cartin becomes attracted to her fellow writer on the screenplay, Tom Buckley. The film is also a good example about how female roles in society started to shift during World War II.

Bill Nighy was as fun to watch as I was told. He plays an aging actor finding his popularity is stuck on something he did years ago, and like Catin finds an opportunity within the war.

Overall, I really enjoined the movie. Gemma Arterton made a really good lead actress and the movie altogether was a great story.

Everything you were expecting ... except it isn't

Everything you were expecting ... except it isn't. Their Finest is very coherent, with simple yet relatable and sympathetic characters, the story moves forward as a reaction of the universe and is not necessarily character-driven, with conflict usually being originated from authority figures such as the producers/the studio. Their Finest not only uses the war to drive the plot forward and smartly show how it constantly affects the characters, but also makes a statement on how studios and producers control the creative process to win the audience's approval and give a positive image of the allies. The humor of the film is simple and sometimes silly in a way that it does not always add anything to the story. That being said, the simplicity of it does add a nice layer of happiness to a story that is not meant to be over-dramatic, and Bill Nighy's performance and character nails in the comedic aspect. Overall, Their Finest is an above-average romantic film. It is not groundbreaking and might feel like many films we've seen before, but will please the audience with a romantic story and a very well thought conclusion that gives a bittersweet aftertaste.

Cinema in Cinema.

The story of a movie withing the movie during World War II. A lady has to be a part of the script writing for a movie.

The movie is said to be a feminist comedy drama and I was lucky enough to watch the Red Carpet Premiere at the Dubai International Film Festival along with the Director (Lone Scherfig), producer and actor (Bill Nighy).

Definitely a beautiful period movie with a some slight comic bits here and there, blended with heart touching sentimental scenes. Beautiful visuals; sound design and set design are wonderful. The performance of the actors are added to the quality of the movie.

As the movie movies towards the cliché of a Hollywood ending, the director decides the other way. A major shocking twist.

An unforgettable movie that will leave a mark in your heart. A must watch and highly recommended.
