Darkest Hour
Movie: Darkest Hour(2018)[tt4555426] During World War II, as Adolf Hitler's powerful Wehrmacht rampages across Europe, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Neville Chamberlain (Ronald Pickup), is forced to resign, recommending Sir Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) as his replacement. But even in his early days as the country's leader, Churchill is under pressure to commence peace negotiations with Hitler or to fight head-on the seemingly invincible Nazi regime, whatever the cost. However difficult and dangerous his decision may be, Churchill has no choice but to shine in the country's darkest hour. Written byNick Riganas

I'm sure I am not alone in having seen everything ever filmed about the man.But this is nothing like I have seen before. He is so funny.We see his ability to make jokes like never before and there is more here than just dry sarcastic references. He keeps us in stitches. He must have told 25 jokes.This film starts in the days when Chamberlain knows he cannot continue as prime minister, alongside the crippling uncertainty of his cabinet meetings, and through to when the entire country, as a result of his speeches, stands firmly behind Churchill as war leader.What surprised me the most was how large a role the opposition party played in Churchill's rise to power.Excellent supporting cast from those distinguished actors we have seen in many BBC productions and "Game of Thrones".Ben Mendelsohn's portrayal of King George VI was stunningly well done.A real delight at Tiff - too bad no Q&A for my screening.
