A British Romantic-Comedy based on the bestselling book by 'Their Finest Hour and a Half' by Lissa Evans.

'One of the Best Movies of the Year' Daily Mail
1940. London. With the nation bowed down by war, the British Ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale. Realizing their films could use 'a woman's touch', the ministry hires Catrin Cole as a scriptwriter in charge of the female dialogue. Though looked down on by her artist husband, Catrin's natural flair gets her noticed by cynical, witty lead scriptwriter Buckley.
Catrin and Buckley set out to make an epic feature film based on the Dunkirk rescue starring the gloriously vain, former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy). As bombs are dropping all around, Catrin, Buckley and their colourful cast and crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation.
'A witty, romantic and move portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war.... and the movies!'
