Woman's Own - - Promotional Feature -

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!

In cin­e­mas Jan­uary 12.

Churchill and Cle­men­tine are a dream team Gary Old­man makes the fa­mous V for vic­tory sign
