The British film industry continued during World War II with a focus on boosting morale and promoting the war effort. Gemma Arterton plays an eager young woman who falls into a scriptwriting job. We follow her experience, including the uncertain relationship with another young writer (Sam Claflin). At one point, the American producing partners suggest the picture needs more punch. The creators of THIS film could have profited from that advice. The pace never varies…even the dramatic moments and bombings happen with an underplayed approach. Ultimately, this often makes it rather dull. There are interesting glimpses at period movie production, Bill Nighy’s arrogant actor provides some humorous moments and it’s a sweet story. A bit more drama and variety would have given it more appeal. (Criterion Cinemas only)
