An Oscar-winning Gary Oldman stars as Winston Churchill, the cigar-chomping, whiskey-swilling eccentric handed the poisoned chalice of power with Hitler on the march and Europe on the brink of collapse. The situation isn't much rosier on home soil. King George VI (Ben Mendelsohn) doesn't trust him and senior party members - most notably Halifax (Stephen Dillane) and Chamberlain (Ronald Pickup) - are conspiring against him, so does he stick to his guns or give in and pursue peace talks? Gripping historical drama from Atonement and Hanna director Joe Wright, with Kristin Scott Thomas and Lily James - as wide-eyed young typist Elizabeth Layton - rounding out the cast.
