Gary Oldman’s complete transformation into Winston Churchill is just one of many wonders in Joe Wright’s (Atonement) eagerly anticipated new film.
Newly appointed as Prime Minister, Winston Churchill must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler or to continue fighting against an increasingly powerful German army. With tension mounting as the odds stack up against the Allies, Churchill must make a choice which would change a generation.
Impeccably directed by Wright and with a supporting cast that includes Ben Mendelsohn, Samuel West and Ronald Pickup, Darkest Hour will be a strong contender for statuettes during awards season.
