Negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds? This is what faced newly appointed Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman). During the early days of World War II and with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms and the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership Winston Churchill.
“Because (Churchill’s) hold on power is so precarious, Darkest Hour has an energy that most political dramas don’t possess.” Filmthreat.com
