The Danish director Lone Scherfig returns after 2014’s sour rich boy drama The Riot Club with this dashing film-within-a-film, starring Gemma Arterton as a screenwriter hired for a propaganda film set around the battle of Dunkirk. (Note to Christopher Nolan: This is how you get women into your war movie.) The always-welcome Bill Nighy is perfectly cast as the British film star Ambrose Hilliard, and Jake Lacy (Obvious Child, Fran from Girls) pulls major comedy out of the all-American boy who can’t act. Arterton and co-writer Sam Clafin struggle against their feelings for each other and the looming dread that they’re making a piece of trash. A tragic ending—deftly foreshadowed gives this light-hearted offering surprise weight.
