Darkest Hour

Nominated for 6 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor.

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, and the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advancing, Britain faces its darkest hour. The fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed Prime Minister, Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman in an Oscar worthy performance). 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 keep fighting against incredible odds. Gary Oldman is a tour-de-force in an acclaimed film directed by Joe Wright (Anna Karenina, Atonement). (PG-13, 125 mins)
