1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s spirits – and inspire America to join the war. A witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war… and the movies!

Beautifully directed – [Scherfig] managed to get fantastic performances out of the cast, some of the best I have seen from them. I loved the light and shade of the script – the moments of lightheartedness only added to the depth of the heart break.”
