The Darkest Hour a.k.a. second POV of Dunkirk.
But in all seriousness, this is still a compelling film to watch. Even if you haven’t seen Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, you’ll still enjoy watching Gary Oldman completely transform himself for the role of the ever wise and iconic Winston Churchill.
Set in World World II, The Darkest Hour portrays the dire state that England was in before Winston Churchill was selected as Prime Minister. He was disliked by all in parliament and plotted against by some politicians with their own agenda. A story of perseverance, life lessons and victory, this film is sure to tug at your heart and reflect.
This historical drama is a thrilling true story that is perfect for those who love films set in the World War II era. The production design is expertly done, and the cinematography was enchantingly haunting. Gary Oldman’s performance is outstanding and truly carries the film out to its maximum potential. Quite honestly, I would give this film most of the Oscars it’s nominated for.
The Darkest Hour has six Academy Award nominations, including: Best Picture, Best Actor (Gary Oldman), Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Best Production Design.
