In 1940, a married woman (Gemma Arterton) and a screenwriter (Sam Claflin) develop a growing attraction while working together on a propaganda film about the evacuation of Allied troops from Dunkirk, France. A beautifully crafted costume drama with terrific performances, Lone Scherfig’s new film is a quietly subversive, funny and finally moving account of a little known story from one of the darkest, most uncertain periods of British history
