“Their Finest” has been selected as part of the Spotlight programme at Sundance 2017. It joins a collection of films designed as a tribute to the cinema that Sundance programmers loved most from the past year.
“Their Finest” is directed by Lone Scherfig (“An Eduction,” “The Riot Club”) and premiered to excellent reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. It tells the story of Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton), an untested screenwriter during World War II who is tasked with creating a morale-boosting film to help push Britain to victory and combines the quick-fire repartee of a screwball battle of the sexes with the reality of film-making in London during the Blitz.
Lionsgate will release “Their Finest” in Spring next year.
