Darkest Hour - Churchill & Oldman
• What we'll do On 25th January - 6.00 PM From 19th January - 25th January STARRING: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendelsohn, Lily James Dir. Joe Wright 125 mins United Kingdom 2018 SYNOPSIS: Gary Oldman is utterly transformed and Oscar-worthy as Winston Churchill in Joe Wright’s gripping retelling of a pivotal moment in British history. Days after becoming Prime Minister in May 1940, Churchill is thrust into a baptism of fire. Allied forces are cornered at Dunkirk. The threat of invasion looms. A cabal of politicians led by Lord Halifax (Stephen Dillane) pushes hard for peace talks. Faced with an unprepared public, a sceptical king (Mendelsohn), and his own party plotting to oust him, Churchill must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler or stand and fight. Based on a screenplay by Anthony McCarten (The Theory Of Everything), this lavish period drama thrillingly depicts the bubbling cauldron of backroom conflict in Churchill’s momentous first weeks in office. It’s a rousing story of leadership, and makes for a wonderful companion piece to last year’s immersive epic Dunkirk. NOTE I will be there at about 6:05. The movie will start at 6:20 ish.

Public Group

Meet other local Movie Fans! Get together to watch the latest mainstream and independent cinema releases! Join us! All events are free to attend except for your cinema ticket. Its a great stress buster and a great way to meet new friends. I hope we get to know people from different cultures and have a great time together. Over the course of time, members interested in organising events will be made assistant organisers. We normally go for an informal drink after the film has finished, that is of course optional, what matters is that we have a great time!
