A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation.

  • ‘Darkest Hour’ was pretty great except for one annoying scene

    Darkest Hour is what you’d expect, a long and wordy biopic. If you’re a World War II history buff, you’ll probably love the attention to detail and incredible Winston Churchill speeches performed by Gary Oldman. However, there is one scene that almost ruined the entire movie. Winston Churchill decides to ride the train to get a feel for how the blue collar layman feels about Hitler and the war. A bit on the contrived side already, but digestible. Of course, there is a man of African decent on the train, sitting amongst white people. He’s even sitting next to a white woman and giving his input and joining in the camaraderie of the train car.

    This might not seem egregious at first glance, but for a move that is set on being so historically accurate, this really pulls you out of the movie. Segregation laws were not enacted in the United Kingdom until the ‘Race Relations Act of 1965.’ While it may have been possible that a black man was on a train full of white people in 1940, it is highly doubtful. And even more unbelievable is his interaction with the other people and ability to speak up and be treated as an equal. In a movie where they probably got an expert for every tiny prop, down to the napkins they use at meals, it is jarring when this scene begins. This scene never actually took place in reality, I think they just needed a black person in the credits after ‘Dunkirk’ was chastised for not being diverse enough.
