- Synopsis / Plot
- A period comedy-drama about a group of filmmakers struggling to make an inspirational film to boost morale during the Blitz of London in World War II. Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) is a "slop" scriptwriter, charged with bringing a female perspective to war films produced by the British Ministry of Information's Film Division. Her current project is a feature inspired by stories of British civilians rescuing soldiers after the retreat at Dunkirk. Catrin's artist husband looks down on her job, despite the fact that it's paying the rent. At least lead scenarist Tom Buckley (Sam Claflin) appreciates her efforts. While on location in Devon, Catrin begins to come into her own and earn the respect of her peers. She's the only crewperson that Ambrose Hilliard (Billy Nighy), a past-his-prime yet nonetheless pompous actor, will talk to.
