Darkest Hour

Gary Oldman, of of my favorite actors, as Sir Winston Churchill.

Perhaps a bit of a stretch of some, as Churchill is clearly a very well-known and studied character, his every nuance being public knowledge already, but I think that Oldman really pulls it off in what's probably going to be a very convincing role.

Being released just before Christmas. Can't wait to see it.

Thumbs up

Great Fit!

Oldman will do his job if everyone else does theirs.

This I look forward to!

Oldman is always solid, no matter which role he undertakes.

I was always more interested in Churchill's early years, although this might be a movie worth checking out.

Perfect match of Mr Oldman - the speech in the House of Parliaments brings back memories of youth :-)
