I've always been a fan of Churchill. I own THE GATHERING STORM with Albert Finney as Churchill and Vanessa Redgrave as Clemmie, which is about the years before this movie and INTO THE STORM which is about what happened after the war. So this one fits nicely into the middle of the collection. However, there was a lot I did not know about those first days of him in office. I was surprised that Neville Chamberlain was still being listened to after his disastrous agreement with Hitler. And I was impressed with King George. Gary Oldman, of course deserves the Oscar for best actor. He entirely disappears into his character. But all the other actors were superb as well. Kristin Scott Thomas is a wonderful Clemmie. And Lily James is wonderful as the insecure secretary. The actor who plays the King should also get a nomination. I recommend that if you like this movie, you look up the other two here on amazon.
