Darkest Hour

Director: Joe Wright
Starring: Kristin Scott Thomas, Gary Oldman, Ben Mendelsohn, Lily James
Duration: 125 min


Gary Oldman is utterly transformed and Oscar-worthy as Winston Churchill in Joe Wright’s gripping retelling of a pivotal moment in British history. Days after becoming Prime Minister in May 1940, Churchill is thrust into a baptism of fire. Allied forces are cornered at Dunkirk. The threat of invasion looms. A cabal of politicians led by Lord Halifax (Stephen Dillane) pushes hard for peace talks. Faced with an unprepared public, a sceptical king (Mendelsohn), and his own party plotting to oust him, Churchill must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler or stand and fight. Based on a screenplay by Anthony McCarten (The Theory Of Everything), this lavish period drama thrillingly depicts the bubbling cauldron of backroom conflict in Churchill’s momentous first weeks in office. It’s a rousing story of leadership, and makes for a wonderful companion piece to last year’s immersive epic Dunkirk.
