Movie: Darkest Hour

March 2, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This historical drama from Joe Wright focuses on the trials of Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) in the days after he becomes Prime Minister in 1940.

With the German armies rolling through Europe, Churchill must figure out how to rally the nation as many of those around him advocate peace talks with Hitler.

The World War II drama is one of this year’s hottest Oscars contenders and audiences have been showing their appreciation around the world.

During the final scene of Darkest Hour, Oldman’s Churchill addresses the House of Commons with the famous “We shall fight on the beaches” speech, in June 1940.

According to the Telegraph, the famous piece of oratory has been met with “extraordinary” standing ovations in the both the UK and US. One of Darkest Hour’s producers, Eric Fellner, admitted he was surprised by the news, saying it “very rarely happens.” – Express
