Alongside Gemma Arterton and Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy stars as fading matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard, who reluctantly joins their production in a supporting role.

Based on Lissa Evans' novel, Their Finest Hour And A Half, this is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war… and the movies!

In Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, Desmond Doss saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun.

He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers.

Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor and this is his gripping story, directed by Mel Gibson.
