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 (Gary Oldman). While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds.
Insider’s tip: “A gripping account of a pivotal moment in the early days of World War II, grounded by an Oscar-worthy performance by Oldman” (Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch). Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com, adds: “I’ve been trying to think when there was a historical drama I found as electrifying as Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour. . . .”
GARY OLDMAN won the 2018 GOLDEN GLOBE for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama.
DARKEST HOUR has another 23 wins and 52 nominations for excellence.
