Delivering one of the year’s standout performances (and transformations!),
Gary Oldman stuns as Winston Churchill. With Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain
forced to resign less than a year into World War II, Churchill is chosen as his
replacement. He is faced by an almost impossible feat: with resources dwindling
and the Fall of France imminent, Foreign Secretary Viscount Halifax’s reports
to the War Cabinet push for peace talks with Hitler.
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. Churchill must
confront the ultimate choice: negotiate, or rally the nation and fight on
against incredible odds in this fast-paced political thriller.
