A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) 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, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
"Churchill's darkest hour is Gary Oldman's finest. Gripping, touching, amusing and enlightening" (Empire)
