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 (Academy Award nominee 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. Directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice).

Nominated for 6 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor (Oldman).

The Boston Globe – “‘Darkest Hour’ is good, glib entertainment.”

The Los Angeles Times – “Oldman’s brassy presentation goes well beyond a collection of mannerisms. It gives us a sense of a flesh and blood person behind the bulldog-fierce political leader who presided over his country’s celebrated World War II resistance.”

The San Francisco Chronicle – “‘Darkest Hour’ is a persuasive window into history, and so arresting in its portrait of one of the 20th century’s most important leaders that every minute of it is absorbing.”

NPR – “Hidden behind resplendent latex jowls, Gary Oldman plays Churchill as a stout-hearted but deliberative man who’s willing to paddle against the political tide, but doesn’t arrive at his confidence easily.”

Rated PG-13. Run time 2 hours 5 minutes.
