Featuring an Oscar-winning performance from an unrecognisable Gary Oldman, as Churchill, this is an artfully constructed account of the darkness that threatened to engulf Britain at a crucial early stage in WWII. Joe Wright brings his usual flamboyant visual style to a story of backroom politicking and bunker-room firefighting, creating a claustrophobic portrait of Churchill's inner turmoil, even as Sir Winston redefines the very idea of British stoicism.
