AT THE MOVIES ~ THEIR FINEST

AT THE MOVIES ~ THEIR FINEST

Call me a sentimental sap if you want, but I thoroughly enjoyed Their Finest, the latest British import filled with stiff upper lip, put the kettle on, we can defeat the Nazis as long as we all do our bit attitude. Their Finest is the type of serio-rom-com nobody does better than the British.
 
Their Finest pokes fun at itself, but always maintains the reserve, dignity, and dry sense of humor inherent in the British cultural DNA.
 
While it is definitely lead actress Gemma Arterton's film, Bill Nighy still manages to steal every scene he's in (as he always does). I would buy a ticket to see Nighy read a census report and know I'd come away amused and entertained. He is a British treasure, and so is this film.
 
My favorite of the year so far, but it will take something really special to top it in my affections...
