Their Finest

“Their Finest” is set in London in 1940, during the height of the Blitz, and takes its title from a speech by Winston Churchill. It is a film The Emoji Movie about filmmaking, in particular the making of a film that needs to serve as a salve for the besieged British populace, boosting morale and helping, in its own way, to win the War. It features a plucky, proto-feminist heroine, a jaded love interest, a raft of distinguished English character actors, and an adorable dog. When boiled down to elevator pitches, “Their Finest” sounds less like a film than a winning round of Oscar-bait bingo.

Happily, it is nothing of the sort. It is, rather, a relentlessly charming romantic comedy that sees director Lone Scherfig steer a sharp course correction A Dog’s Purpose from 2011’s misbegotten “One Day,” and finally expand the sensibilities she displayed with “Italian for Beginners” and “An Education” into a more commercial direction. Aiming for a target somewhere between Howard Hawks and Richard Curtis, “Their Finest” is the sort of crowd-pleaser that knows the difference between satisfying its viewers and flattering them, all the while showcasing surprising performances from Gemma Arterton and Sam Claflin, and an entirely Crooked House unsurprising one from Bill Nighy — a master scene-stealer pulling off yet another brazen heist.
