Opening of “Their Finest”

STX Entertainment’s new British historical drama, THEIR FINEST, opened at the Ritz Five last week and is expanding to additional theatres including the United Artists King of Prussia and Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

Inspiring, funny and genuinely romantic, “Their Finest” is a solid, refreshing crowd-pleaser.” Lindsey Bahr, ASSOCIATED PRESS

“A heart tugging salute to all the impossible dreamers who believe in the magic of the movies” Allan Hunter, SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

‘Their Finest’ delivers in a way that would please the Ministry of Information: it’s rousing and emotional, there are laughs and tears, and it portrays people trying and, mostly, succeeding at being their best selves in the service of their country.” Alonso Duralde, THE WRAP

Cast:

Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, and Bill Nighy

Director:

Lone Scherfig

Writer:

Screenplay by Gaby Chiappe

Based on the novel by Lissa Evans

Producers:

Stephen Woolley, Amanda Posey Finola Dwyer, Elizabeth Karlsen

With London emptied of its men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) is

hired by the British Ministry as a “slop” scriptwriter charged with bringing “a woman’s touch”

to morale-boosting propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing

movie producer Buckley (Sam Claflin) whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime.

As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to

make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although Catrin’s artist husband looks

down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion

behind the camera as there is onscreen.

Uber and Out? – What Happens After Start Up?

babc-uno-banner984x376

REGISTER HERE
Young professional entrepreneurs are the driving force behind current economic development in our region and around the world. The creative and information technology sectors are two of the fastest growing industries. Innovative ideas are often born and incubated in higher educational institutions. When graduates launch they have the choice to remain in the City where they studied or to leave. The Greater Philadelphia region is a higher ed. hotbed, and a brain drain. How does Philadelphia compare to other Smart Cities throughout the US and to Silicon Roundabout in London for example in keeping young, bright start-ups in town? How will Brexit and the new US government impact entrepreneurial ventures and affect global mobility and cybersecurity? Join the BABC Young Professionals Group for the annual seminar and networking event. Meet experts who will address the Internet of Things and how this topic is shaping our world, the global economy, and nearly our every breath.
