Gemma Arterton plays Catrin, a diffident young Welsh woman who lands a job with a unit making short propaganda films for the Ministry of Information at the height of the Blitz.  Hired to write ‘the slop’, as dialogue between women is dismissively termed by her jaded writer colleague Buckley (Sam Claflin), she ends up working on a morale-boosting feature film about the exploits of a couple of seafaring sisters during the Dunkirk evacuation.  Bill Nighy as a vain and ageing ham and Jeremy Irons as the dictatorial but out-of-touch Secretary of War are on top comic form.

Gorgeous to look at with impressive set design, the film captures your attention from the outset, largely due to the impressive work delivered by its key actors. Arterton is wonderful as Catrin, a striking, very strong woman carving her own path in life while being pushed and pulled by her over-bearing ‘husband’ Ellis (Jack Huston), while Claflin also provides his usual firm support – but it is Bill Nighy who once again captures every viewer’s attention in nigh-on every scene he’s in. . .  It’s a really charming film which will definitely have you beaming as you leave the auditorium.”
