THEIR FINEST AN EXCELLENT ENGLISH WWII FILM
we just watched a fine film released in 2016 Their Finest. Set during the bombing of England in WWII. A young woman arrives in London looking for work as a writer. She signs on with a documentary film company working for the Ministry of Public Education. They make films to buck up the populace. A project to document Dunkirk becomes a dramatic film because of the fine writing and persistence of Catlin, a new hire to the company. Great acting, writing and fine production. Long film ends twice., but in the end its a moving, funny and sad drama. I recommend it especially for people who may be forgetting how important personal, human relations are, particularly in parlous times like these.
