Set during World War II, Their Finest is a movie about making a movie about the Dunkirk evacuation, to boost British morale. Watch the trailer below.
If history is not your thing I guess at some point this trailer spoiled the end of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk for you, in which case I’m sorry. But let’s be real, if you’re here watching a trailer for a World War II film, you probably know a thing or two about what happened at Dunkirk. As far as Their Finest goes, based on this trailer it seems to be more romantic comedy then drama. That’s obviously not a bad thing and the movie does look good. Now be honest, how many of you were fooled by the glass in the beginning?
Lone Scherfig directed Their Finest and Gaby Chiappe wrote the screenplay based on the novel “Their Finest Hour and a Half” by Lissa Evans. Starring in the movie are Gemma Arterton, Bill Nighy, Jack Huston, Sam Claflin, Jeremy Irons and many others.
Their Finest was first screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in September last year. It will release in the US starting April 7th and in the UK on April 20th. Currently the movie has a very good 86% on Rotten Tomatoes after 14 counted reviews.
