Lionsgate have today released the first official trailer for Their Finest – and it is stunning. The WW2 comedy drama sees Sam portraying Tom Buckley, a writer hired to make morale boosting propaganda films during the blitz on London.
1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered alongside fellow screenwriter, Buckley (Sam Claflin) and eccentric actor Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), the trio set off to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the American population.
THEIR FINEST, based on Lissa Evans’ novel, ‘Their Finest Hour and a Half’, is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war… and the movies!
Boasting an incredible British cast including Gemma Arterton, Bill Nighy, Richard E Grant, Jack Huston & Eddie Marsan, this heartwarming film hits UK cinemas on April 21st!
