Show & Tell: The Darkest Hour

[Gary Oldman] gives us a sense of a flesh and blood person behind the bulldog-fierce political leader. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Nominated for 6 Oscars. During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Oscar nominee Gary Oldman). Directed by Joe Wright (Atonement).

PG13 • 2h5m • US
