Darkest Hour headed for glory
Gary Oldman and Kristin Scott Thomas star in this WWII biopic
It’s 1940 and Europe is at war. With the Allies trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk, and Nazi forces edging ever closer to British shores, the fate of the nation rests with one man...
Newly appointed Prime Minister Winston Churchill (convincingly played by Gary Oldman) must deal with the threat of a Nazi invasion.
Darkest Hour shows Churchill, statesman and husband, as he grapples with a sceptical King, a mutinous government and a nervous British public. Fortunately, his greatest ally is his brilliant wife Clementine (Kristin Scott Thomas). He faces a critical decision: enter into a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright
(Atonement) and already hotly tipped for awards glory, Darkest Hour gives a thrilling and inspirational portrayal of a leader whose courage in the face of adversity changed the course of world history. Don’t miss it!
