Darkest Hour DVD

| DVD

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, 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. [show more]

    Editor Review

    I like the simplicity of this script and the particular attention paid to the nuances of Churchill's character. It is clear that history could have had an entirely different course if a different British leader was in power, or if Churchill had succumbed to the pressure he was under. I wondered what we would say about a person who takes whisky with his morning eggs being in charge of decisions of such import. There is more than a suggestion of Churchill wrestling with his conscience, and that he consulted the common man and woman to appreciate the resolve of British citizen and it is clear great courage and conviction was required to arrive at decision of which utilitarian principles were employed - the Train Track Dilemma on a grand scale. There is limited attention to the war itself and the focus is much more on the political process rather than the affect on individuals - other than Churchill himself. The make-up is fantastic and you are utterly convinced of Churchill's re-incarnation. If you hate politics - this is not for you but if you are interested in how history is made - it is outstanding.

    Verdict
    A fantastic film if you love historical drama
