Gary Oldman tipped for an Oscar in this inspiring WW2 drama, screening at the Kirkgate

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman).

While manoeuvring 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 fight on against incredible odds.

Also starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Lily James.

“Churchill's darkest hour is Gary Oldman's finest. Gripping, touching, amusing and enlightening” - Empire

“Gary Oldman gives the performance of the year as Winston Churchill in director Joe Wright's rip-roaring take on the celebrated Prime Minister's first tumultuous month in office" - Rolling Stone
