During the London Blitz of World War II, Catrin Cole is recruited by the British Ministry of Information to write scripts for propaganda films that the public will actually watch without scoffing. In the line of her new duties, Cole investigates the story of two young women who supposedly piloted a boat in the Dunkirk Evacuation. Although it proved a complete misapprehension, the story becomes the basis for a fictional film with some possible appeal. As Cole labors to write the script with her new colleagues such as Tom Buckley, veteran actor Ambrose Hilliard must accept that his days as a leading man are over as he joins the project. Together, this disparate trio must struggle against such complications such as sexism against Cole, jealous relatives, and political interference in their artistic decisions even as London endures the bombs of the enemy. In the face of those challenges, they share a hope to contribute something meaningful in this time of war and in their own lives.

A very good movie, as always. But the ending was a bit abrupt. But I liked the movie, I just can't figure out why it ended this way. I loved the story of the Japanese soldiers and the British soldiers. I also like the British soldiers in general. I also like how the soldiers in this movie cared for their fellow man. It's a good movie and I recommend it. But it's not for everyone.

This is my first review and i have to say that i really enjoyed this movie. The story is amazing. The actors and actresses were all brilliant. The music is really good too. I really liked the scenes where she fell in love with him. The fight scenes were great. The battles were really good and the whole movie was really good. I recommend this movie to anyone. I think it will win awards for it's good story and characters.

I was a young adult living in the United States when I first saw this movie. I was watching it with my boyfriend, and I had no idea that I was going to love it. I was enthralled by the way the story was woven together. I have been a fan of the book since I was a young girl and watched the movie a few days ago. I still feel that I should watch it again. I am sure that I will have more love for the movie than I have for the book. I am still going to try to find a copy of the movie so that I can read the book, but this is one movie that I would love to see again. I will definitely be recommending this movie to anyone who wants to see it.

A good movie for the family and no matter what your politics are, it is good to see the history being told. I don't agree with the more extreme points of the movie (for example, the "yellow peril" and the "red peril"). That being said, the movie was very entertaining and worth seeing. I recommend it.

You can't help but wonder if the "Finest" in the title refers to the film's sexual orientation. I mean, it's hard to know, especially when you're looking at the film's poster, which features two lesbian actresses, one wearing a bunny suit. But that's the title of the movie. The movie's first-person view focuses on a lesbian couple, but their relationship is more of a cautionary tale than a love story. It's a pretty good film, but it's certainly not a movie I'd recommend.

I was skeptical about this movie. It looked to me like a love story with a war story in the middle. I was surprised to find that this movie had a great plot. I felt like I was in a war zone in the middle of the last World War. This movie is a masterpiece. The characters are real, the story is gripping, and the war scenes are so real that you can feel like you are there. It makes you think about the war and it makes you think about your own life. The plot is simple, but the story is very well done and it is great to see the characters grow and mature. The actors do a great job, especially the lead roles. I could not believe how good they were in this movie. I wish they would make more movies like this one. The movie is great. 10/10.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It's very original and a really well written story. The characters are extremely likable and the characters are real. You care about them. I really like how they don't have a happy ending. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen.

This is a film that is intended to be a comedy, but it does not seem to have been targeted at the humor industry. I would like to see it taken seriously, as a political statement. It is so sincere, in fact, that it is difficult to see where the film might have been taken that way. In the first half of the film, we follow the progress of the German army and the other soldiers as they are forced to fight. The German soldiers are portrayed as tough, patriotic, and virtuous. We are led to believe that they are willing to fight any number of battles to avenge their brothers and sisters who are slaughtered by the Nazis. In the first half of the film, the German soldiers are almost universally portrayed as heroic and good-hearted, in spite of their heavy casualties. In the second half of the film, we see a different side of the German soldiers. We see them as evil, violent, and violent, and we see the soldiers as being willing to kill anyone, including their own comrades, to avenge their deaths. The Germans are not seen as the "good guys," and in fact, the German soldiers are portrayed as a threat to the American soldiers. This difference between the German soldiers and the American soldiers, and how the Germans are viewed by their own men is what makes the film so compelling. It is the movie that many will recognize as the most effective antiwar film. It is a very powerful film, and is still very effective after 40 years. Even more powerful, it is the movie that really shows us the evils of the German war machine, the horrors of the Holocaust, and the terrible acts committed by the Nazi regime, and of the "liberated" German soldiers. I recommend this film to anyone who would like to see a well made, well acted, and well-acted film that will make them think.

I saw this movie at the cinema and I really enjoyed it. I got a couple of reasons to like it: 1) the story is well told, not like other war films. 2) the performances of the actors are pretty good. I saw this movie in a theatre with a couple of hundred people and they were all laughing a lot. I think that's a great reason to see it, and I'm very happy that I did. It's not a perfect film, it's not about the war, it's about the war in general. It's about the impact of war on the people around it and on the people in the war itself. It's about the joy of life, the fear of death and the joy of the spirit. It's about the end of war and the happiness of peace. It's about how you can see your life through the eyes of your loved ones and how they can see it through yours. I really recommend it, because it is worth seeing.

I do believe that this movie would be a lot more appreciated if people were more familiar with the original novel. I think that the movie could have been done so much better if it had been made before the translation of the novel into the film format. I have seen this movie twice, and I will definitely be buying it when it is released on DVD. The acting is great, and the music is great. I can't say that I am the biggest fan of the original, but I think that this movie was better than "Saving Private Ryan". I think that this movie was made more for the young audience, and I think that it was good for all ages.

This is a great movie, and I am surprised at all the negative reviews. The movie is good, it is about a soldier who is sent to a desert island in the middle of the ocean. There he meets a girl named Wilma who has a camera that she needs to get a job. She is extremely helpful, and so is he. The movie is not about war or war heroes, it is about the friendship that develops between the two. The acting is great, and it is great to see Wilma and Luke going to war together. The story is great. I was not expecting much, but I found it to be a very good movie.

It is not always a matter of "was it worth it?" but rather a matter of "was it good enough?" It is a story about a man who has lost his wife in a terrible accident, and who has to keep on fighting, even if it means losing his wife and daughter, to have him and his daughter recognized. The audience is taken on a journey with this man and his daughter, who are just trying to live their lives, as they are so much in love with each other. The man, with his wife and daughter, is a man with many things, and in a situation where he can't seem to keep the two of them, even though they are close to him. The result is that the viewer is not only in love with the man, but is also on his side, and in love with his daughter, even though he is unable to be with her. But it is not all sweetness and light, it is a bitter and tragic story, and a story of love, but also of the struggle for survival, and of the strength to live, even in a very difficult situation. The performances of the actors are wonderful, especially of the husband and his daughter. There is a sweetness and innocence in their expressions, and it is an emotional film. In my opinion, it is one of the best films that I have seen, in terms of the emotional impact it has on the viewer. I believe it is worth seeing, because it is very uplifting, and because it is a story of love and of life. It is a very good film, and one I recommend to everyone, because it is a very nice story about the importance of love.

The way the movie was shot reminded me of a 1970's documentary. I'm not sure what the director was trying to achieve, but it was a good movie. I think that the movie is about the WWII as it was told by a man who was a soldier in that war. There was a great scene when he was out in the woods and his dog was trying to get him to open up. He was talking to his dog and the dog was saying, "I don't know what you're talking about". Then he was talking to his dog, and the dog said, "I don't know what you're talking about." The movie is funny, not too gory and the ending was a little different. The story was good and the actors did a great job. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

As a child I enjoyed this film a lot, and I enjoyed it a lot even after watching it more than ten times. But, when I watched it for the first time I was confused. The first half is very interesting and suspenseful, but the second half is very boring. The characters and the story seem to be moving too fast, and the characters are not developed enough to care about them. But it's not a bad movie, it just doesn't have a lot of suspense. However, it's a great movie and I would recommend it to anyone who loves war movies. I would give it a 5/10. One of the best war movies I've ever seen.

It's one of those movies that get you thinking, and the more you think about it, the more you want to watch it again. This movie is just like that. It's got a pretty good storyline and an amazing cast. You should really go out and watch it, because you are sure to be thinking about it the next day. It is a perfect movie to watch on a Saturday night. 7 out of 10.

This film is directed by Jason Reitman, who also stars as the director, and stars are Paul Giamatti, Robert De Niro, and Danny Glover. The story takes place in 1944, in a fictional town called Borak to the west of Zama, Iraq. The town is run by the Army who wants to build a dam in the area. However, the local mayor, who is played by Paul Giamatti, wants to make the town more "authentic" by having the local girls play the role of nurses in the local hospital. However, he is sabotaged by the Army who is trying to destroy the town. The film also stars Michael Pena, who plays the town's mayor. It's a great movie to watch with friends and family, it's a good movie to watch when you are in a mood to laugh or cry. I also thought that the acting was great, the characters were very well played, and I really enjoyed the ending. The film also has some great scenes and I recommend it to people who like their movies to have a good story. I give it a B.

I am surprised to see so many negative reviews for this film. I really enjoyed it. I think it's a great movie for young people to see. I have a few friends who are in the military and they liked it as well. The soundtrack was good too. I know that the military is not like the movie, but the same is true for the military in general. I think it's a great movie and I am looking forward to seeing it again. I think the acting was good and I was impressed with the message the film gave. The soldiers are the real heroes and not the military. The main actor in the film was a bit different from the characters in the book, but it didn't bother me. I think they were all good. The ending of the film was a bit abrupt, but it was good. I'm looking forward to seeing this film again. It was a good film and I would recommend it.

A couple of years ago, I was a student of the cinema at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I was curious to see this film because it was filmed by my alma mater and the film maker was from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. This film is the best film I have seen all year. In the film, the makers use the playwright's play as a basis to tell the story. I have seen it twice, and I plan to see it again. I have read that this film was made in the late 70's and was not released until 1991. This is the film that the filmmakers used as the basis for the playwright's play. This was a very strong film and I would recommend it to anyone. It was written by the playwright, the director, and a group of young actors. It was shot in Canada and has a Canadian cast. It is a great story, with a very strong plot. There are strong characters, and the cast is wonderful. The plot is about a British soldier who returns home to his home town to visit his parents. He is a musician, and his parents are very supportive of his musical talents. The son is very much interested in music. He is in love with his girlfriend, but he is not quite sure if she loves him. He starts to write songs, but he has no confidence in his writing skills. He decides to put them in a play. The son and his friends go to the play and try to do the music. The son is successful at getting the cast to do the music. The son's friends are unsuccessful at getting the actors to do the singing. They eventually go to the play and try to do the singing. They do a great job. The actors are terrific, especially the son. I would recommend this film to anyone.

The first time I saw this film I thought it was just a bunch of really silly scenes and a mediocre story. The second time I saw it I was just glad I had seen it once. I thought it was very good. I thought the story was very good and it had a lot of good and interesting things. The characters are very well developed and they are likable and the acting is very good. The only thing I didn't like about the film was the music. The music in this film is very good and it fits the scenes. The only thing I didn't like about the film is the fact that I thought the story was very good but the music was very good and I think they could have done a better job with the music. I think it's a good film and I give it a 7 out of 10.

I've read a few reviews on here about how terrible this movie was. I actually thought it was pretty good. This is a pretty great family movie and I actually like the ending. It shows how the War really affected people and their lives and how people made mistakes, how they had to make a choice between freedom and comfort and what they did in the end. It was a good movie, though I'm not really sure if it deserves to be in the top 250. I guess it's just not for everyone, it's not going to win any Oscars or anything. I thought it was good, but it was not great. It's not a movie I would buy in the video store, but I would definitely recommend it. I think it's a pretty good movie. I give it a 7 out of 10.

The title of this movie is "The Greatest Story Ever Told", which, by itself, is a fine title. The story is not a really original one, but it is a well told one. The characterizations are not always well done, but the story is well told. I thought the production values were excellent, the editing was nice, the special effects were well done, and I thought the acting was good. However, I thought the characterizations were just OK. The performances of the two main characters, who played the leading roles, were not really good, but the others were good. The supporting characters were not really good, but the other supporting characters were good. The movie was not really about war, but it was about a war in an isolated country, which was a war between two factions, which were fighting for power, money and control of the country. The war lasted for a few years, and was only stopped by the death of the commander of the main faction. The plot was quite predictable, but it was not that bad. It was not a good movie, but it was not a bad one. The only real problem I had with the movie was that it was a bit too long. I would have liked to see the movie in two parts. I think this movie was a bit too long, but it was a good movie nonetheless.

I watched this movie, and in fact, I felt it was a pretty good film, but it was nowhere near the movie it was hyped up to be. The first half of the movie is pretty much dull, and then the second half is an interesting, but not much of a plot, action-packed movie, with a nice amount of drama, and romance. The acting was pretty good, and the acting was decent for the most part. I would say this is the movie to see if you're looking for a good film, with a few good laughs. I would say the acting is actually better than it is in the trailers, and that is not a compliment.

This movie is very sentimental and I felt like crying when it ended. The movie has good acting. The story is interesting and the scenery is beautiful. It is very good and I recommend it to everyone. If you're a lover of war movies and you like the movie, you'll definitely like this movie. I'm not an American, but I think the movie is more about the war in Vietnam, than about the war in the United States. It's a good movie and I recommend it to everyone.

I watched this movie at a screening for the Academy Awards last night. I am not sure what I was expecting from this film. I found it to be a very different take on the war. It was different in that it was based on the true story of the men who were trapped by the Japanese. In the first half of the movie, they are portrayed as heroes, although the first half is mostly about their problems. They are not heroes in the sense that they do a heroic act. They are not heroes because they save the world. They are heroes because they saved their own lives. I found this to be very refreshing. I did not think that this movie was overly sentimental. I do not think that it was overly violent or anything like that. There were scenes in the movie that were very graphic, but they were mostly flashbacks. The only time that they were shot was when they were being transported to the POW camp. It was almost like the movie was a documentary. I thought the actors were good, and it was very interesting to see how the men portrayed themselves. I thought the story was well done, and it was an interesting take on the war.

This is the story of a couple, of two, who have been married for a few years. They have a young daughter, and have been together for 5 years. This is a slow-paced movie, that keeps the audience on their toes, because you don't know what will happen next. I would say that the movie is realistic, because it is based on a true story, and is based on a true story that happened in the 80s, and this is how things were. If you like realistic movies, then this is a movie that you will like. I would also recommend this movie to those who like romantic movies, because this is not a romantic movie, it is a drama-comedy movie. It is a good movie, that is worth watching.

We've all heard the story of the American Civil War. It's a painful and sad story that's so important and so tragic that it's almost impossible to watch without feeling something. It's also the story of a lot of people, both good and bad, and how they dealt with their difficult times and how they had to live with them. From that, we get this movie that makes you think about the times you've been in, and how the times have affected you. It's not very long, but it's certainly worth it. I was never too interested in Civil War movies, but this was the first I've seen. I must admit that I'm not a history buff, but I'm not too sure that I can really say I understood the whole thing. It's a story about how men worked together in a country where many men had to rely on each other. It's about how people were afraid of their own lives, but also afraid of the deaths of those who were in the same situation. The movie has a very good cast, but it's mostly about the main character, and what he does and what he thinks about the situation. I'd recommend that you don't watch it until you've finished reading the book, or at least until you've read it and know everything about it. It's a very powerful movie, but don't expect it to be so. You'll see what I mean. I'd recommend it to people who are into movies about the American Civil War, but not history buffs. It's not a movie you can watch once and forget about.

Having read the book, I went into this movie with an open mind. I figured it would be just like the book. But it was a lot more than I expected. I really enjoyed the movie, and was entertained throughout. I thought it was a very unique and different take on the war. The story had a nice twist, and was more realistic than some of the movies that I have seen. Some may think that a lot of the movie is predictable, but I didn't mind. I was more drawn in to the story than I thought I would be. Some of the acting was mediocre, but I thought they did a great job. Overall, I thought the movie was a lot better than I expected, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to watch a good war movie. I give it a 7/10.

This movie has a great story, a great cast and a great soundtrack. I have watched it a number of times and I enjoy it every time. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes war movies and/or people who are fascinated by the fact that most of our history is actually true.

When I first saw this movie, I wasn't too impressed. But, after watching it again a couple of years later, I'm glad that I saw it. It is a very interesting story, and it's about an Irish boy and an Irish girl who are working in a warehouse, and they just happen to be the best friends in the world. They meet a fellow worker, who happens to be Irish, and they begin to fall in love with each other. But, you don't know how they are going to end up together, and so it's a very exciting story. The acting is very good, and it really shows how strong the friendship can be between two people who are not related to each other. The movie is not too long, but it is also not too short. It's very interesting, and I recommend it.

In the past years, there have been some great movies out there, but this is definitely one of the best I've ever seen. It's definitely worth seeing, just because it is so well made. The story is very unique, and that's what makes it so great. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it before, and I think the entire world will be going to see this movie. And I think it's worth seeing it in theaters because the movie is so well made. I also think that it is a very important movie to see because of the message it has. It's about the importance of love and the importance of friendship. I think it's a very important movie and it will make you think about the world we live in and what is important in our lives. The movie is a movie that everyone should see. I think it's a very good movie and it is a very good movie because it's very well made.

I've just seen this movie. I've never been a big fan of Jeff Bridges but this movie is so funny. I never saw it in the theaters so I didn't really know what to expect. I thought it would be some stupid comedy with some cliche Hollywood cliche type characters. But the characters were so funny, it was great. The cast is fantastic. I loved every single one of them. I'm not sure why they didn't win an Oscar for this movie. The performances are great. Bridges is great, and it's nice to see him in a movie that he really does his job. Michelle Pfeiffer is so cute and innocent. She's perfect for the part. I've never seen her in anything before, but she was perfect. Bradley Cooper is also great. He's a great actor. He's so funny. The supporting cast is just fantastic. I'm a big fan of the director and I loved his work. I think this movie is worth seeing.

I saw this movie at the Detroit Film Festival last week and it was a great experience. As a fan of the book, I was a bit disappointed that the movie didn't follow the book quite as closely as it did, but I think that the book and the movie are both terrific. The acting was great, the cinematography was fantastic, and the music was very appropriate to the movie. The movie has a very dark tone to it, but it's a story about two people who get caught up in war. I think that it was a very great story and I can't wait for it to come out on DVD! I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in a great movie.
