Academy Award® nominee Gary Oldman gives a "towering performance" (Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair) in acclaimed director Joe Wright's soaring drama Darkest Hour. As Hitler's forces storm across the European landscape and close in on the United Kingdom, Winston Churchill (Oldman) is elected the new Prime Minister. With his party questioning his every move, and King George VI (Ben Mendelsohn) skeptical of his new political leader, it is up to Churchill to lead his nation and protect them from the most dangerous threat ever seen. Also starring Academy Award® nominee Kristin Scott Thomas and Lily James, Darkest Hour is a powerful, inspirational drama.




  • Very good!!!

    I was afraid it would be one of those boring movies with slow pace, but I was surprised. It was actually very good and the acting was amazing.

  • Oldman’s tour de force performance

    By stoph61
    A terrific movie that shares an incredible story of Winston Churchill and England gearing up for the greatest battle by the greatest generation. Oldman’s performance was remarkable. This is history told the way it should be.
  • True Art- Oldman is amazing

    By Red Grange
    Gary Oldman gave us one of the finest performances of a historical icon since Daniel Day Lewis played Abraham Lincoln. A real measure of this success is when an audience is totally immersed into the character and feel they really have become that character. The scenery, the wardrobe, the lighting- all excel to the finest detail. I expected more military action- my only disappointment- but surprisingly the intelligence and maturity of this motion picture was enough to transport us into a terrifying prospect of Hitler taking over the last stronghold of humanity in Europe. This is a really refreshing break from the silly endless super hero movies and make believe motion comic books that have little intellectual value. People may actually learn a few things (or seek out further exploration) into this strange icon of the man who may have saved us from Nazi domination.
  • Gary Oldman...

    This is a very staged movie. I think that this movie and ‘DUNKIRK’ together make a unique historical world that creates a place for this movie besides watching Gary Oldman. I continued to forget that he was playing Winston Churchill. The very claustrophobic and red/yellow hue is an angst engine for this interesting and amazing performance. I have been an Oldman fan since I first saw him years ago. This is why the Academy Awards is still relevant. A movie that could be performed on a perfect stage with perfect design is very dependent upon the actors. This film becomes whole when history and ‘DUNKIRK’ meet Oldman’s Churchill. God save the Queen and Prime Minister Churchill!!!

    great movie and performance
  • Oldman did a wonderful job

    A good snippet of time starting from Neville Chamberlain’s resignation up to the Dunkirk rescue, we get a sense of the pressure and stress felt by Churchill as the reality of Great Britain’s fall looms. Oldman captures The British Bulldog in all the quirkiness and toughness I always imagined.
