About this Film


ODEON says...
Set during the preparations for D-Day and the liberation of France, ‘Churchill’ takes us behind the scenes and reveals the real man behind the public face of Winston Churchill.

He was gripped by doubt and paranoia about D-Day: during the First World War, he had overseen the invasion of Gallipoli, a disastrous campaign that resulted in more than 250,000 people being cut down. Nearly 30 years later, he was terrified that it would happen again, and that he’d be blamed for even more deaths. 

Brian Cox stars as ‘Churchill’, in a gripping biopic set during the most daunting period of the great man’s life.

Not Impressed

Reviewer: Pip2Date: 2017-07-08

Found the first half quite boring and was falling asleep. Second half was much better but I was unhappy with the portrayal of such a great statesman who was, if one is to believe the content of this movie, not held in very high regard by others.

I walked out

Brian Cox gives a mesmerising performance as a tortured Churchill weighing up the life cost of D-Day. King George, his wife and his secretary are his voices of inner calm whilst Eisenhower provides the necessary war momentum. A stunning film!

Not bad

Fear and hesitation alway embody in people, even the great man.
