This is a documentary or docudrama, more correctly about what Winston Churchill walked into when he was appointed as Prime Minister of England in 1942. Hitler was gobbling up European countries like M&Ms. The British army of 300,000 men was backed up to the British Channel in France about to be over run by the advancing German Army. Which was then the most lethal killing machine the world had known. Churchill not only had the take on his new office but grab the reigns of power and strategize how to buoy his country from the Germans’ eminent threat. The movie is very much about the man and his inner process and outer pugnacity. It is excellently acted with Gary Oldman likely getting an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Churchill.
