Churchill on DVD

Your Family History - - Agenda -

Star­ring Brian Cox as the man him­self, the DVD of Churchill is re­leased on 16 Oc­to­ber. It fol­lows the Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter in the days be­fore the D-Day land­ings in 1944. The Al­lies are ready to in­vade a Europe oc­cu­pied by the Nazis, but have to wait for Churchill’s de­ci­sion on whether to give the in­va­sion the go-ahead. But Churchill is de­pressed, ex­hausted and wor­ried about his legacy – how will he re­act to the pres­sure to make the right de­ci­sion?

The screen­play for Churchill has been writ­ten by his­to­rian Alex von Tun­zel­mann, and there is an im­pres­sive cast, in­clud­ing Mi­randa Richard­son as Cle­men­tine Churchill, John Slat­tery as Gen­eral Eisen­hower and Ju­lian Wad­ham as Field Mar­shal Mont­gomery.
