STX Entertainment’s just released a new trailer for Their Finest, a romantic comedy/drama set during World War II. Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education), Their Finest stars Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games franchise, Me Before You), Gemma Arterton (Watership Down), and Bill Nighy (About Time). STX Entertainment’s set an April 7, 2017 theatrical release date for the dramedy based on Lissa Evans’ novel.
The Plot: With London emptied of its men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole (Arterton) is hired by the British Ministry of Information as a “slop” scriptwriter charged with bringing “a woman’s touch” to morale-boosting propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley (Claflin) whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although Catrin’s artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.
