Churchill (PG)

Director Jonathan Teplitzky. Biography/Drama/Thriller


Tensions mount for the beleaguered British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the days leading up to infamous Allied D-Day landings in Normandy, France in June, 1944. Fearful of repeating his deadly mistakes from World War I in the Battle of Gallipoli, exhausted by years of war, plagued by depression and obsessed with his historical destiny, Churchill is reluctant to embark on the large-scale campaign, one that the entire war effort hinges upon. Clashing with his Allied political opponents U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower and British Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, the troubled Churchill receives support and devotion from his wife, the brilliant and unflappable Clementine Churchill. With her strength and shrewdness, "Clemmie" halts Winston's physical, mental spiritual collapse and inspires him on to greatness.

Starring Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A very emotive and powerful film following the few vital days before D-day. Brilliant performances by the leading roles.

Good film; enjoyed by all.

I thoroughly enjoyed "Churchill". It is a more cerebral film without the need for great big panoramas of the invasion on D-Day, but the enormity of the decisions facing the leaders (and their partners/employees) at that time were highlighted brilliantly. Not often I say this - but I would happily watch it again.
