Reviews:
"The film crews, both Scherfig’s and her fictional one onscreen, deliver picturesque backdrops on a modest budget." - 04/07/2017 RogerEbert.com


"THEIR FINEST is a treat that has something on its mind, a charming concoction that adds a bit of texture and bite to the mix. Genial and engaging with a fine sense of humor, it makes blending the comic with the serious look simpler than it actually is." - 04/06/2017 Los Angeles Times


"At its best, which is often, THEIR FINEST by Danish director Lone Scherfig manipulates appearance and reality, relief and recognition, with exquisite finesse. As befits a film about making films." - 04/13/2017 Boston Globe


"THEIR FINEST is too understandably serious to be called a romp, yet it has a buoyancy that lifts you and, in Ms. McCrory, a woman who does, too." - 04/06/2017 New York Times


"Scherfig’s tonal instincts are spot-on, and her depiction of wartime London strikes a believable balance between grit and rose-tinted nostalgia. The film is broad and rib-nudging when it wants, understated and dignified when it needs to be." - 09/11/2016 Variety


"Scherfig doesn’t gloss over the cost of war. Death constantly resides in the background, except when it thrusts itself into the foreground, as it does without warning." - 04/14/2017 Chicago Sun-Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "THEIR FINEST is a slight, warm, funny delight, informed by a gently etched feminist agenda." - 04/21/2017 Empire
