Customer Review

on 2 March 2012
This movie tells the story of Winston Churchill during the 1930s. Churchill at this time was in decline. His party peers lost their appreciation of him, perceiving him as an old, selfish opportunist. His future, all thought, including Winston, was behind him. And then Nazi Germany started to armour itself and to build a strong army, in violation of the Versailles Treaty. Churchill was one of the first to see this with alarm. Steadily he built the reputation of a leader who could stand against the threat, a person who looks at reality in the eyes and say: Stop the illusions. War is ugly. War is terrible. But sometimes it is unavoidable if you wish to save yourself.

The movie also provides a close look at the relationships between Winston and his wife Clementine Churchill during a troubled time in their lives. The cast is superb, led by incredible actors who remind us how good British cinema can be: Albert Finney, Vanessa Redgrave, Derek Jacobi, Linus Roache and Tom Wilkinson. People who have a sense and appreciation of history should put this film on their list.
