Ella Purnell. UK 2017. 98 mins.

June 1944. Allied forces stand on the brink of invasion, but one man stands in their way: Winston Churchill. Drained by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill (Cox) is a shadow of the hero who resisted the Blitzkrieg. In the days before the Normandy landings, his uncertainty clashes with the gung-ho resolve of his political opponents.

His fear: repeating deadly past mistakes and going down in history as an architect of slaughter if the campaign fails. Only the support of his headstrong wife Clementine (Richardson) can halt his physical and mental collapse. Churchill is the untold story of the dark side of Britain’s most celebrated leader, revealing the haunted frailty behind the rousing speeches and his vital relationship with ‘Clemmie’, the confidant
who inspired him to greatness.
