Writer-director Jonathan Teplitzky (The Railway Man) directs a superb Brian Cox as one of Britain’s most prominent and complex icons, Winston Churchill, at a nail-biting stage of World War II. Written by historian Alex von Tunzelmann, Churchill is set in the 48 hours before the D-Day landings in 1944 as Allied Forces stood poised to re-take Nazi-occupied Europe, waiting for Churchill’s potentially triumphant – or disastrous – OK. Drawing on Churchill’s relationship with his beloved wife (Miranda Richardson), this immersive biopic reveals the terrifying anxieties, both personal and political, at the heart of a fascinating man and historical moment.
