Storyline

Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.

Gud 2017 movie
7 November 2017 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Incredible screenplay, visionary directing, outrageous acting, and riveting sound!

The inspiration, as per the screenwriter Anthony McCarten came from 4 speeches given by Churchill over the course of several weeks by Churchill, which makes up the period of the movie. The film exercises restraint in its emotive aesthetic choices - which coupled with the sound by Dario Marianelli- provide the supporting cloth for the actors' and actresses' visceral performances. The result is a portrayal which is honest, heartfelt, and magical.
