CURZON - WINNER OF THE BAFTA FOR OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO BRITISH CINEMA
Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour

Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice​) directs this stirring wartime drama, with Gary Oldman embodying Winston Churchill in the dramatic events that lead to his accession to prime minister and the formation of the wartime coalition government.

Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill 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 the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a sceptical 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.

Q&A screening: Fresh from his Golden Globe-winning success for his portrayal of Winston Churchill, we are honoured to welcome Gary Oldman for a post-screening discussion of the film. Thursday 25 January 6.30pm, Curzon Mayfair.
