Gary Oldman (Academy Award nominee for Best Actor) gives a masterful, gripping performance as Winston Churchill, leading his country in its darkest hour. In the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent and the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk as the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed Prime Minister Churchill. While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate a peace with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or try to rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Darkest Hour is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Actor (Oldman) and Cinematography
