The film follows Winston Churchill in the days before the D-Day landings. As allied forces stand on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe, they await Churchill’s decision on whether the invasion will go ahead. He is, fearful of repeating his mistakes from World War I in Gallipoli, is exhausted by years of war, and faces criticism from his political opponents. Only the unflinching support of Churchill’s brilliant, unflappable wife Clementine can halt his physical and mental collapse and help lead him to greatness. Stars Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson.
