Films About Women Opening This Week“Their Finest

Their Finest — Directed by Lone Scherfig; Written by Gaby Chiappe

Their Finest” sees Gemma Arterton as Catrin, a young woman hired to write lines for women in British war propaganda movies. It’s a movie within a movie dealing with gender roles in the ’40s that at times feels all-too-relevant. Catrin’s paid less, she’s treated like a second class citizen, yet she endears herself to the operation which is vital to the morale of the British citizens during the war. Arterton, one of the finest young actresses working, infuses Catrin with some serious spunk in her endeavor to be taken seriously. (Melissa Silverstein)

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is a mess. She gets kicked out of the apartment she shares with her boyfriend (Dan Stevens) — which served as a way station for her partying friends — and she winds up on the floor of her childhood house in the town everyone tries to escape from. She re-meets a childhood friend (Jason Sudeikis), starts to work in his bar, and then discovers that she is fueling a Godzilla-like monster wreaking havoc on Seoul, South Korea. The premise is crazy, but the movie works. There is a twist, which I won’t reveal, that illuminates a great gender discussion and sets Gloria on the path to taking her life back.
