Director Joe Wright's (ATONEMENT) DARKEST HOUR earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture. The inspiring story begins at the precipice of World War II and follows Winston Churchill (Academy Award winner Gary Oldman) who, days away from becoming Prime Minister, must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
