Directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Anna Karenina), Darkest Hour is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Winston Churchill’s (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) courage to lead changed the course of world history.

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 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.
