Darkest Hour: Gary Oldman and Director Joe Wright Discuss On Winston Churchill For The Big Screen

Gary Oldman has portrayed one of the best performances on screen of the greatest orator in world history.

Oldman stars in Darkest Hour as Prime Winston Churchill during the tumultuous times of Great Britain’s history of World War II.

The film also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Stephen Dillane, Ronald Pickup and Ben Mendelsohn. The story is written by Anthony McCarten and directed by Joe Wright.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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. While maneuvering 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.

LRM had a sit-down interview with actor Gary Oldman and director Joe Wright about the portrayals of Churchill on screen.

Darkest Hour will be opening in additional cities this week.
