This is a 2016 British made film which only had a small release in Canada. The movie stars Gemma Arterton, Bill Nighy and Sam Claflin. It take place in 1940, shortly after the British evauation at Dunkirk when the war was going very badly for the Allies. Arterton pays Catrin Cole, a young Welsh girl who is recruited to work at the Ministry of Information film dept. making films to lift peoples spirits. Nighy plays an actor whose career is on the skids who joins the film unit. There are nice cameos by Eddie Marsan as Nighy's agent and  Jermey Irons as Anthony Eden, Minister of War. An entertaining look at Britain during the war. I give it a 7/10
