Their Finest

Yesterday I saw the new movie Their Finest. This is a story, based on real events, set in the early 40s in war-torn London. It concerns the acknowledgement by the “establishment” that female writers may have some use, at the very least to write the “slop” of feminine perspectives. While working hard on the propaganda machine, Mrs. Cole is drafted into a scriptwriting team, working on a movie about Dunkirk. The movie lovingly portrays her struggles for acceptance in a chauvinistic world, with the tragic backdrop of the blitz. Excellent writing and performances make this a must-see for movie lovers.
