Saturday Movie: Churchill

1h 45min | Biography, Drama, History 

96 hours before the World War II invasion of Normandy, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill struggles with his severe reservations with Operation Overlord and his increasingly marginalized role in the war effort.

Director: Jonathan Teplitzky
Writer: Alex von Tunzelmann
Stars: Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery 

My thoughts:
Yes I watched another CHurchill movie, yes I believe none of you have watched this one. And that is why I am here, watching the movies you all have not, so that you do not have to... ;)

But, it was not that bad. Ok so it was not good, but it was not bad. It was better than the movie Carole and I watched, but Oldman was a greater actor, nothing beats him.

This takes places before D Day and he feels they are making a huge mistake that will get people killed. I saw another side to him here. The war had taken its' toll, and he did not want more death.

Great actors, though why they have his wife running around when she does not really bring anything to the story I do not know. Give her a bigger part!

It was rather interesting.
