A group of filmmakers — Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton), Tom Buckley (Sam Claflin) and Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy) — attempt to boost morale during World War ll. They do this by struggling to make an inspirational propaganda film about the successful battle at Dunkirk to inspire the people of Britain, and get them to continue the war effort during the London Blitz.

In producing the film, the characters learn that everyone has a role to play in defeating the Nazis and that perseverance is key – from that, bonds are made that the horrors of war cannot break.

  • 2 stars "Limited amount of reviews, took a chance anyway. Well, British it may be, good it is not. Nothing could save this movie. "Boring" is the word that comes to mind. This movie is all over the place - neither comedy, drama or romance. The theme of this movie had the potential to be a little gem that the British are known for. Sadly, it has failed in all aspects."
  • 3 stars "Nice world war II period piece that the English seem to do so well. Gemma Arterton is the female lead and steals the show with Bill Nighy doing nicely as always. Very enjoyable with the basic plot being how to make a propaganda movie that will get America into the war."
