I love movies like this because it is simply a story and a story well told without the big box office blitz or big stars and super special effects.
Directed by Lone Scherfig, Their Finest follows Catrin Cole, played by Gemma Arterton, who fills a man’s job because London emptied of its men now fighting at the Front. She is hired by the British Ministry of Information as a “slop” scriptwriter charged with bringing “a woman’s touch” to morale-boosting propaganda films. If you didn’t know, a slop writer adds the sentimental touch to a story.
Cole’s natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley, played by Sam Claflin, whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation.
Although Catrin’s artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.
Gemma Arterton explains the movie well.
Great interview answers from Bill Nighy
Just about a whole new cast in the latest installment of the Wimpy Kid franchise. It looks like fun, but a road trip? I could be fun. Hang on tight because I see some familiar faces.
King Arthur has Guy Ritchie written all over it with the choppy shots and hard rock music. After viewing the trailer, I am not quite sure of the storyline with a bold stroke of fantasy and gothic.
Ritchie brings an edge to the story in his own dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure. We’ve all heard or read the story growing up. Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.
Jude Law is in the movie as well and knows Ritchie well from their Sherlock movies. I hope the next trailer share more of the storyline.
When four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.
I have not heard so much filth in a long time. It does look like they are having fun, but not all women talk like that, right?
This trailer is really funny.
