Within days of becoming PM of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) faces 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.
Facing the threat of invasion, an unprepared public, a sceptical king, and with his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to alter the course of world history.
This is big screen history to savour.
