Film: The Darkest Hour

Directed By: Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice)

Principal Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristen Scott Thomas, Lily Cole, Stephen Dillane, Ben Mendelsohn

Plot Summary: World War Two, 1940 – Britain and the Allies are losing the war. Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) takes over as Prime Minister from Neville Chamberlain and sets about galvanizing parliament, his inner cabinet and the entire British people to fight the threat of Hitler and Nazi’s.

Nutshell Review

The Good: The acting  -the entire main cast are all universally excellent but the film belongs to Gary Oldman as Churchill -who gives a towering, pitch perfect, career defining performance (and that’s saying something) that’s so good they Academy might as well give him the Oscar right now. In addition Joe Wright’s direction is superb and the make up effects are genius.

The Bad: Not applicable

The Ugly: Not Applicable

Best Scene

Churchill’s “fight them on the beaches” speech to parliament – had me in tears and feeling very proud to be British. Recommended viewing for anyone contemplating a career in the armed forces or a certain national team about to face the Germans in a world renowned football tournament.

Worth paying to see at the Cinema? – Oh God yes

Worth buying on DVD/Blu Ray – Definitely
