THE CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED account of Winston Churchill’s early days as Prime Minister, as the Nazi armies swept all before them in their march across Western Europe, is the subject of our next Film Club showing on Thursday, June 28.
Darkest Hour tells how the mounting threat of invasion and imminent defeat for Britain in the early months of World War Two led to friction at the highest levels of government between those who wanted peace with Hitler at any cost and Churchill, who flatly refused to even consider such an approach.
Gary Oldman’s brilliant portrayal of the wartime leader deservedly earned him a 2018 Best Actor Academy Award, a performance that truly makes Darkest Hour a must-see film.
As always, Film Club screenings are strictly for members only and there is no charge for admission. There is, however, a small charge for refreshments, which will be available during the interval.
