CHURCHILL follows Britain's iconic Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the days before the infamous D-Day landings in June 1944. As allied forces stand on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe, they await Churchill's decision on whether the invasion will actually move ahead. Fearful of repeating his mistakes from World War I on the beaches of Gallipoli, exhausted by years of war, plagued by depression and obsessed with fulfilling historical greatness, Churchill is also faced with constant criticism from his political opponents; General Eisenhower and Field Marshal Montgomery. Only the unflinching support of Churchill's brilliant, unflappable wife Clementine can halt the Prime Minister's physical and mental collapse and help lead him to greatness. CHURCHILL is directed by Jonathan Teplitzky (The Railway Man, Marcella) from an original screenplay by British historian Alex von Tunzelmann (Medici: Masters of Florence) in her feature debut. Starring Brian Cox (War & Peace, Coriolanus) as the legendary Winston Churchill, Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter, The Crying Game) as the Prime Minister's wife and confident Clemmie, John Slattery (Spotlight, Mad Men) as General Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied D-Day operations, and Julian Wadham (The Iron Lady, War Horse) as British military commander Field Marshal Montgomery.from£10.00 | RRP:

Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson star in this British biographical drama directed by Jonathan Teplitzky. Set in 1944, as tensions mount in the days leading up to D-Day, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Cox) faces some big decisions as the Allied powers prepare to launch an attack on the advancing Nazi forces. With US General Dwight D. Eisenhower (John Slattery) and Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery (Julian Wadham) becoming increasingly frustrated with the prime minister's apparent reluctance to send his remaining forces across the Channel to counterattack the Germans, Churchill is forced to turn to his most trusted confidant, his wife Clementine (Richardson), as he contemplates authorising the attack which could shape the future of the war. The cast also includes James Purefoy, Jonathan Aris and Ella Purnell.
