Factual error: When flying to France to have talks with the French premier a C47/Dakota is shown in the background intimating that it was the plane he came in. The C47 did not enter service with the RAF until after this period of the film with Lend Lease.
Darkest Hour is a film based upon Winston Churchill's time as Prime Minister from his tumultuous election to the U.K. entering into war against Germany during World War II. Gary Oldman becomes a very convincing Churchill, perhaps more animated and passionate than the man he portrays. With his supportive wife and secretary behind him and gaining support of the King, Churchill faces down his political rivals and the menace of the Nazi threat with defiance. Well acted, filmed and produced, fans of British history dramas may enjoy this look into one of their more colorful and recognizable politicians.
