Dir: Lone Scherfig
Starring: Gemma Arterton and Sam Claflin
A scriptwriter for propaganda films joins the cast and crew of a major production while the Blitz rages around them
This largely successful wartime comedy drama is based on the 2009 novel Their Finest Hour and a Half by Lissa Evans. Set in 1940 and the London Blitz it is unsurprising that Aldwych station features, decked out once again as an underground air raid shelter. On this occasion the station masquerades as Edgware Road, and in addition to the platforms there is a rare scene filmed in the ticket office and shots of its street level entrance. With thanks to reelstreets for the screen captures.
