Darkest Hour (out Jan 11) is a historical drama that spans only a few weeks in the year 1940 and looks at what went on behind closed doors before Prime Minister Winston Churchill declared war against Germany. Gary Oldman ticks all the boxes with his great leading performance but the female characters (e.g. Churchill's wife and secretary) are not given as much to work with. Grade: B+.
