With London emptied of men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole lands herself a job writing copy for propaganda films that need "a woman's touch". Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. With the country's morale at stake, Catrin, Buckley and a colourful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin discovers there is as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.
"Arterton is perfect as Mrs Catrin Cole, simultaneously luscious and reserved." Times UK
"Scherfig's sentimental approach favours easy laughs and warm romance but the film starts to cut a little deeper in its closing stages." Screen International
"Arterton brings grace and understatement to Catrin's gradual belief in herself and in the magic of movies, while Claflin reveals maturity and dry humor that will be a surprise for audiences who know him primarily from his Hunger Games role." Hollywood Reporter
