Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn, Stephen Dillane, Anna Burnett
Despite his much-vaunted reputation as an actor who truly inhabits a role, Gary Oldman still has the capacity to surprise and astound. Darkest Hour demonstrates this, with Oldman at his charismatic best as newly-elected British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill.
Immediately faced with the decision on whether to negotiate with Nazi Germany or stand his ground, and contending with an unprepared nation, a sceptical King and political schemers, what he does next will change the course of history.
With a fine script by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything), Joe Wright (Atonement) returns with this rousing portrait of an iconic leader.
The Darkest Hour screenings on Sat 20 Jan at 14:30 and Mon 29 Jan at 18:05 will have onscreen captions.
