Topic: Darkest Hour

Oldman is class as you'd expect, putting in a solid oscar performance, but that's it, it just comes across as an oscar vehicle. Scenes between him and Kirsten Scott Thomas are dynamic and touching. I like Lily James, she's bang tidy, but she seemed out of sorts here, seemed to be added just for a bit of sauce.

Watched on a moody download, doubt I'll go see it now as it's not a visual movie..

Could not help thinking is was made by Boris Johnson Productions - besieged PM standing up for plucky Britain against evil hun.

Torn about going to see this;  think Gary Oldman is the finest British actor since...etc,. etc,.

But despite being a top leader in the time of war, Churchill was a cunt.

Might wait until it's on tv
