Film No. 25 (2017) Their Finest April 12th.

Film No. 25 (2017) April 12th.  6.30 PM LUNA WINDSOR Nedlands.

"People like film, the story's a structure and when things turn bad it's still part of a plan, there's a point to it". (Buckley lectures Catrin about the relevance of making a film to boost the moral of people, the words turn out to be very poignant indeed).

Even the poster for Their Finest has the Union Jack as part of its design. There is nothing more British than this film about the making of a war-time picture to boost the morale of its red, white and blue patriots. Ironically enough, the release of Their Finest came not long after Brexit. The film is poignant, sweet, sad, funny, sumptuous and most of all clever. Arterton as the heroine with nine lives and Nighy the vain ageing studio star, work the well crafted dialogue with precision. A perfect matinee movie about the origins of matinee film making. 10GUMS.
