    The idea that Churchill would even entertain the idea of sitting down with the Big Three to find an early solution to end the war is pure Hollywood. How about this - Casablanca and while FDR and Stalin have a tete a tete with Hiltler (yes Hitler wanted an end as well) but Churchill refused to sit at the same table to even think of such a deal. Do you wonder why Churchill was excluded from the rest of the Conference while FDR cozied up to the Russian Butcher believing he could control him. Do you wonder why the relationship between Churchill and FDR was never the same after Casablanca?? Otherwise a great movie led by Hollywood's greatest actor of the times.

    Excellent movie from beginning to end. Gary Oldman is outstanding as Winston Churchill and he should win an Oscar for his performance. **5 star movie**

    The best film I have seen in a year. We need more films like this. Gary Oldman was out standing and I was impressed with the entire cast. I had to drive, however, for over an hour to see this film since our local galaxy theatre does not seem to be showing it. It was advertised with trailers, but it is not playing and not on the list of films "coming soon". It was well worth the drive however. I actually have seen it twice.

    A pleasure to experience a movie that paints an historically accurate overall view of events in England, in spring of 1940. Whether Churchill ever entertained thoughts of peace talks with Hitler, we shall never know. This is history, dramatized at its best. A must see.

    This movie is historically wrong. It portrays a criminal that sent millions to thir death as a national hero. Nothing could be farther away from the truth.

    This is a must see if you are a Churchill fan, and helps illustrate the power of oratory and a committed leader in a situation that seems dire, and without solution, but is able to bring a country and world into the light. Gary Oldman is superb, the and seems to own the Churchill persona. If only we had a modern day Churchill in our house or senate! I am asking all my friends and family to “please see it!”!!!

    I loved it. I have seen it three times so far. It is especially interesting to those who lived though this time period.

    Great film. Lot's of older folks in the audience so the appeal may not be for those not familiar with the times. It does capture the spirit of this horrible time in British history and how Churchill was the right man at the right time. Oldman is a wonder in the role. Kristin Scott Thomas was fabulous and should have had more air time in the movie. Worth your nickel.
