RD Recommends Movies - Darkest Hour

The fall of France is imminent with Allied troops trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk by Hitler’s forces.

RD Recommends Movies - Darkest Hour
Reader's Digest

This thrilling account of Winston Churchill’s darkest hour during World War II is beautifully directed by Joe Wright (Atonement).

It’s 1940, and as the newly appointed Prime Minister of Britain, Churchill has ‘the full weight of the world’ on his shoulders.

The fall of France is imminent with Allied troops trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk by Hitler’s forces.

Churchill must negotiate with political rivals Neville Chamberlain (Ronald Pickup) and Lord Halifax (Stephen Dillane), and face the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally behind the nation and fight on against inconceivable odds.

Gary Oldman is unrecognisable as Churchill, capturing the manipulative good humour, slyness, strength and courage to lead that ultimately changed the course of world history.

Read the inspiring tale of a boy on the cusp of manhood who met Winston Churchill - an article that first appeared in the October 1978 issue of Reader's Digest.
