Packed with shrewd wit with a lot of heart, this is the charming, nostalgic, spirited wartime drama that the British film industry has been waiting for.
Gemma Arterton stars as Catrin, a talented young copy-writer enticed to London from Wales by her self-absorbed husband (Jack Huston). She gets a job as a script editor with the Ministry Of Information, where she’s hired to write convincing women’s dialogue for morale boosting propaganda.
She’s drafted to work with a colourful crew, including an ageing star (Bill Nighy) struggling to come to terms with the fact his romantic lead days are behind him, to produce the cinematic stories the nation needs during the dark times of the Blitz. With Richard E Grant, Eddie Marsan, Helen McCrory and Jeremy Irons.
Also screening for Midweek Treat.
The following screenings are subtitled: Tue 25 April at 6.05pm & Sat 29 April at 6.15pm.
