Gary Oldman took home a well-deserved Oscar for his career-high performance in the role of a lifetime, as Winston Churchill, in director Joe Wright‘s (ATONEMENT, PRIDE & PREJUDICE) DARKEST HOUR (which was nominated for a total of six Academy Awards, including Best picture). This thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, 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 skeptical 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.

“Balances the great orator’s public triumphs with more vulnerable private moments of self-doubt, elevating the inner workings of British government into a compelling piece of populist entertainment.” (Variety)

“Considered as history, this film offers the public a few new insights and details about the practice of statecraft in a time of crisis.” (The New York Times)

“Gary Oldman brings a wicked wit and compassionate heart to the role, one for which he seems almost superhumanly suited for – and that’s really saying something, consider how many great actors have played Churchill.” (Toronto Star)
