Cinema Cindy Reviews ‘Darkest Hour’

“Darkest Hour”, the award-winning 2017 film, portrays Winston Churchill as he takes up the mantle of Prime Minister in May 1940.
 
This portrayal of Churchill by Gary Oldman won him the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a dramatic feature film and will likely garner him a nomination for an Oscar, if not the win. (This Winston Churchill looks nothing like Oldman’s Police Commissioner Gordon in the Batman movies, so his make-up and hairstyle team ought also to be nominated for Oscars.)
 
Darkest Hour covers only a few weeks in May of 1940, but difficult

It was strange, Doc thought. All these years. All these people. It still hurts.
 
Old Tom had died around midnight, and Doc didn’t get more than an hour’s sleep since then. Just before he went, Tom reached out and gripped Doc’s hand and thanked him for everything. He was smiling when he went.
 
Somehow that made it worse for Doc than just having death bring a pleasant new start for someone in pain and agony. Doc hadn’t been able to patch him up this time.
