Darkest Hour

The performance that won Gary Oldman his Academy Award for Best Actor (along with the Golden Globe and BAFTA) - Darkest Hour returns to The Maltings due to popular demand!

Within days of becoming the Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill had to face one of his most turbulant and defining tirals, exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.

This thrilling and inspiring true story is a cinematic masterpiece of our time.

"Churchill’s darkest hour is Gary Oldman’s finest. Gripping, touching, amusing and enlightening, his performance is the prime reason this film must be seen — but not the only one." - Empire Magazine
