The spirit of the nation is in her hands.

A British film crew attempts to boost morale during WWII by making a propaganda film after the Blitzkrieg. Stars Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy. Based on the novel Their Finest Hour and a Half by Lissa Evans.

"Catrin Cole (Arterton) is a "slop" scriptwriter, charged with bringing a female perspective to war films produced by the British Ministry of Information's Film Division. Her current project is a feature inspired by stories of British civilians rescuing soldiers after the retreat at Dunkirk.

Catrin's artist husband looks down on her job, despite the fact that it's paying the rent. At least lead scenarist Tom Buckley (Sam Claflin) appreciates her efforts While on location in Devon, Catrin begins to come into her own and earn the respect of her peers. She's the only crewperson that Ambrose Hilliard (Nighy), a past-his-prime yet nonetheless pompous actor, will talk to." - (Toronto International Film Festival)
