Darkest Hour (PG) | Courtyard Screenings.
Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) directs a brilliant and almost unrecognisable Gary Oldman in this thrilling political drama set during the early days of World War II. Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill 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 Nazi forces roll across Western Europe threatening invasion, with an unprepared public, a sceptical King, and his own party plotting against him, the odds are stacked against Churchill rallying the nation, and changing the course of world history.
“Churchill’s darkest hour is Gary Oldman’s finest. Gripping, touching, amusing and enlightening, his performance is the prime reason this film must be seen — but not the only one.” Empire
