On the eve of World War II, and 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 sceptical 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.
A thrilling and inspiring true story, written by New Zealand’s own Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything) and from director Joe Wright (Atonement), Darkest Hour stars Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman, Academy Award nominee Kristen Scott Thomas, Lily James, and Ben Mendelsohn.
‘****Gary Oldman carries off a tremendous performance here, and it’s impossible not to enjoy it.’ –The Guardian
