Just a quick pointer to Their Finest, a film out last Friday. Set during the Blitz, it’s about a writer, Catrin Cole, who got into writing films, first infomercials and then a film to bolster spirits. I remember reading an interview with Gemma Arterton, who plays Catrin (and gets the Welsh accent about 90 per cent right), where she said something like it contained multitudes – there’s comedy, there’s tragedy, there’s romance, and part of that romance is the making of movies. It features west Wales pretending to be Devon (in the film) pretending to be Dunkirk (in the film within the film). I found it involving and moving, with good actors and a definitely female point of view. I keep wanting to call it ‘Their Finest Hour’ but it’s based on a novel called ‘Their Finest Hour and a Half’ which is a phrase that’s used in the movie.
