Public tickets for the event can be purchased via Ucheldre.
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. 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.
Alongside lead Gemma Arterton the cast members include Sam Claflin, as her fellow screenwriter Buckley and Bill Nighy as a fading matinee idol who reluctantly joins their production in a supporting role. Richard E Grant, Rachael Stirling, Jeremy Irons and Helen McCrory round out the cast.
The production shot on location in Wales with support from Wales Screen and received funding from Pinewood Group and the Welsh Government Media Investment Budget.
Stephen Woolley has produced and executive produced nearly sixty films in his storied career, including some of the most acclaimed and successful British and International films of the past three decades.
Born in London, Woolley began his career selling ice creams and projecting films at The Screen On The Green, Islington in 1976. His successes as a producer include The Company of Wolves, Mona Lisa, and The Crying Game (nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture), and Interview with the Vampire, all directed by Neil Jordan.
