Stx Entertainment has unveiled a new trailer for the film Their Finest, the latest feature from writer/director Lone Scherfig, of the films The Riot Club, One Day and An Education (one of my favorites).

11 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After finding a sweet spot with period dramas, An Education director Lone Scherfig is back with another. Her latest film, Their Finest, combines both filmmaking and war to tell the true story of a British film crew who set out to boost morale after the Blitzkreig by creating a propaganda film. Starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy, Jack Huston, Jake Lacy, and Jeremy Irons, the film premiered at Tiff and stopped by Sundance, and now the U.S. trailer has landed ahead of an April release.

We said in our review, “Ticking off multiple points on the big crowd-pleaser checklist, Their Finest is a romantic dramedy about patriotism set during World War II, with a nice splash of girl-power sentiment thrown in as well. And it has Bill Nighy. Can’t do a middle-brow British prestige picture without that guy nowadays. Whenever it hits theaters (likely around the holidays »

1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered with fellow writer, Buckley (Sam Claflin), the pair, along with fading matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), reluctantly joins forces on a movie to warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the Us public.

Their Finest is set for release on April 7th in the States and on April 21st in the UK and features a cast that also includes Jack Huston, Helen McCrory, Eddie Marsan, »

Wonderfully cheery new poster for Their Finest with Gemma Arterton and Sam Claflin

21 February 2017 2:46 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Director Lone Scherfig’s An Education was a wonderful example of a movie adaptation capturing the chaos and colour of a deeply personal coming of age novel. Her latest film goes a little further back in time to the early 1940s and a Britain plunged into the darkness of war. Their Finest tells the story of a British film crew making a propaganda film following the hell of the Blitzkrieg.

The film is based on Lissa Evans’ novel, ‘Their Finest Hour and a Half’, and has bright shining stars Gemma Arterton and Sam Claflin falling in love while all around them falls apart. Scherfig and Claflin previously collaborated on 2014’s The Riot Club. Arterton recently lead the powerful post-apocalyptic zombie fest The Girl with All the Gifts.
