A roll call of much-loved British talent assembles for Lone Scherfig’s delightful romantic comedy-drama, which follows a group of filmmakers struggling to make a morale-boosting picture during the Blitz. Hired by the British Ministry of Information to bring a female perspective to wartime propaganda films, writer Catrin Cole (Arterton) teams up with cynical producer Tom Buckley (Claflin) for the MOI’s most ambitious project yet: the inspirational tale of two civilians’ heroics at Dunkirk. However, the story isn’t quite what it’s made out to be, and the team have to accommodate a self-obsessed, fading thespian (Nighy). Nevertheless, they press on, determined to make a film that will lift the nation’s spirits. Scherfig creates an impressive period piece around Catrin’s story, weaving an enchanting, nostalgic, yet never rose-tinted view of a nation under siege.
Contains infrequent strong language, moderate sex, injury detail.
