Darkest Hour (PG)

Director Joe Wright. Biography/Drama/History


Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill must face 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. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.

Starring Gary Oldman, Ben Mendelsohn, Lily James, John Hurt, Kristin Scott Thomas


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Many comments from the audience all saying what a powerful film. Gary Oldman's portrayal as Churchill was excellent. Our audience number was higher than usual, so it was clearly popular and some in the audience were watching it for a second time. We showed it a couple of days before Remembrance Day so the timing was perfect, and we had previously shown Dunkirk which was mentioned in the film. All in all a successful event.

Film was well received by our audience

Enjoyed by our audience. Sound track difficult to follow at times.
