DEADLINE – Danish director Lone Scherfig continues her path to British citizenship with Their Finest, which took its world premiere bow at the Toronto Film Festival this past weekend. It’s her fourth British film in a row, after An Education, One Day and The Riot Club, and follows a group of characters in wartime London as they mount an heroic film production for the British government’s propaganda machine. When Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) is seconded to pen a screenplay, she is immersed in an hilarious and warm theatrical world that includes characters like prima donna ham actor Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy, on masterful form) and her handsome co-writer Tom Buckley (Sam Claflin).

Based on Lissa Evans’ novel and scripted by Gaby Chiappe, Scherfig’s film paints a rich and nuanced picture of life for those in London who weren’t off fighting, but who still made enormous contributions to the war effort as they dealt with nightly bombings during The Blitz. And it has something meaningful to say about the work of women, especially, in keeping the country running.

Its moviemaking backdrop was what attracted Scherfig, she told me, as she and her cast descended on the Deadline Toronto studio. “It’s a little window in film history where films have never been more important,” she noted.

Arterton shines in the lead, bringing truth and depth of emotion to the film as its parody of the world of 1940s film production keeps the tone light. “There’s broad strokes in this film,” she said, “but everything’s done with such detail that it makes it not-brash. That’s down to Lone’s attention to detail. Little tiny things that you might not even catch, really, but she sees and thinks about.”

Nighy gets the plummiest of plum parts as the monstrously egotistical Hilliard, and he was on typically riotous form at the Deadline studio. “They were looking for someone to play a chronically self-absorbed, pompous actor in his declining years, and they thought of me,” he quipped. “Which is tricky to process on occasion, but I suppose I should be just grateful for the work.”

The great skill of the film, though, is that even Hilliard’s arch character gets to demonstrate a softer side. Says Scherfig: “Ambrose Hilliard changes over the course of the film, as much as someone as vain and ignorant of what goes on around him can change.” (source)

WARNER BROS. UK – The new trailer for The Girl With All The Gifts, directed by Colm McCarthy and starring Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close and Paddy Considine. Coming soon.

The near future; humanity has been all but destroyed by a mutated fungal disease that eradicates free will and turns its victims into flesh-eating “hungries”. Only a small group of children seem immune to its effects.

At an army base in rural England, this group of unique children are being studied, subjected to cruel experiments by biologist Dr. Caldwell. Despite having been infected with the zombie pathogen that has decimated the world, these children retain normal thoughts and emotions. And while still being subject to the craving for human flesh that marks the disease these second- generation “hungries” are able to think and feel making them a vital resource in the search for a cure.

The children attend school lessons daily, guarded by the ever watchful Sergeant Parks. But one little girl, Melanie, stands out from the rest. Melanie is special. She excels in the classroom, is inquisitive, imaginative and loves her favourite teacher Miss Justineau.

When the base falls, Melanie escapes along with Miss Justineau, Sergeant Parks and Dr. Caldwell. Against the backdrop of a blighted Britain, Melanie must discover what she is and ultimately decide both her own future and that of the human race.
