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 sceptical 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.

“This isn’t an uncritical celebration of British bulldog spirit but a nuanced portrait of Churchill at a key point early in the war.” – The Independent

“Grappling with Churchill’s inner humanity and steely resolve, Oldman has offered a portrayal for the ages.” – China Morning Post
