During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman). While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds.

"It feels alive and fresh -- the kind of cinema that doesn't waste a second. "
- Sasha Stone, TheWrap
"Few would argue that Oldman isn’t one of the finest actors of his generation, but this is a tour de force portrayal that will define his body of work for decades to come."
- Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist
"Hello, Oscar! Gary Oldman gives the performance of the year as Winston Churchill in director Joe Wright's rip-roaring take on the celebrated Prime Minister's first tumultuous month in office."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It’s a deliciously unsubtle testament to the power of words and their infinite capacity to inspire."
- David Ehrlich. Indiewire
"While Gary Oldman's phenomenal work as Winston Churchill had been heralded in advance, it is astonishingly equaled by the film's achievements in direction, screenwriting, score and cinematography. "
- Godfrey Cheshire,
"Oldman's brassy presentation goes well beyond a collection of mannerisms. It gives us a sense of a flesh and blood person behind the bulldog-fierce political leader who presided over his country's celebrated World War II resistance."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Balances the great orator's public triumphs with more vulnerable private moments of self-doubt, elevating the inner workings of British government into a compelling piece of populist entertainment."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"A snappy and straightforward crowd-pleaser that focuses on new Prime Minister Winston Churchill's mighty efforts to rise to the occasion of rescuing his country from the appeasers and defeatists in Parliament and stirring the public to defiance of Hitler."
- Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
