Sam posted a picture on his instagram yesterday along with a note stating that filming has begun for “Their Finest Hour and a Half”. The movie is directed by Lone Scherfig who had previously worked with Sam on “The Riot Club” and he will be starring with Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy.
The film is described as “a romantic comedy with a difference set in the early 1940s” and a “portrayal of a young woman screenwriter finding her way in matters of life, death and the heart.” Read the official synopsis below and get excited! We will post more information (and pictures hopefully, lots of it) as soon as they become available so keep checking back.
HANWAYFILMS.COM – With London emptied of men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole lands herself a job writing copy for propaganda films that need “a woman’s touch”. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime.
With the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, Buckley and a colourful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin discovers there is as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.
