Oscar winner Gary Oldman steps into the imposing persona of Winston Churchill in this period drama from director Joe Wright (Pride And Prejudice, Atonement), set in the early years of World War II.

Time & Tickets

This stirring historical drama ushers us into the backrooms and bunkers of British government during a pivotal point in World War II, when Winston Churchill was thrust into the role of Prime Minister and the United Kingdom seemed on the brink of invasion. DARKEST HOUR brilliantly depicts the myriad obstacles Churchill faced in his determination to resist the Nazis – and shows just how close history came to taking a terrifyingly different direction.
Working from Anthony McCarten’s ingeniously structured script, Wright deploys a battery of inventive visual designs to capture his story in flights of Wellesian dazzle. Yet for all the spectacle, DARKEST HOUR is at heart a character piece, and Oldman has transformed himself utterly, rendering Churchill a living, breathing lion of a leader.

Joe Wright, UK, 2017, 125 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Gary Oldman, Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn, Kristin Scott Thomas, Stephen Dillane.
