Hard to believe that a film could beat DUNKIRK but along comes Darkest Hour to prove me wrong.
Darkest Hour is the story of Churchill’s rise to power amidst the crisis of the European collapse in the face of the Nazi blitzkrieg. Its the political backdrop to the Dunkirk fiasco and the split within Britain’s wartime cabinet between capitulation and defiance. A hinge moment of history.
