Runtime: 105 mins Release Date: 02 Jun 2017
Highly recommended. Absolutely fantastic movie. I'm going back again tomorrow. The historic accuracy in this work is first class. A true eye opener. Brian's portrayal of Churchill was truly inspiring and had me hooked from the first scene. The attention to detail in his mannerisms were completely on point.
Fascinating insight into one of Britain's most iconic figures. (by jennyjugs)
I am not a writer or a frequent film-reviewer, however, after watching the premiere of Churchill and a Q&A with the writer, director and lead actors, I felt compelled to review this outstanding film. It is set in 1944, during the 72 hours leading up to D-Day, as the Allied troops prepared for the invasion of Normandy, France. Be warned, this is not your typical war movie nor your typical portrayal of Churchill. The script-writer Alex Von Tunzelmann described the research she had carried out which had enabled her to create this fascinating insight into the 'human-being' behind <more>
Britain's most iconic leader. It is a reminder that even the greatest among us grow old and Churchill's personal battles make his achievements all the more admirable. Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson were outstanding in their roles and if you are lover of History or WW2 or if you are simply getting old aren't we all? ... this is a must-see film.
While many actors have portrayed Churchill, including Albert finneys towering performance, some have missed such as lithgow who is literally twice the height of Winston, Brian cox however has literally become Churchill for the leading role in this film and it is a breathtaking portrayal. Teplitzky the director of excellent historical film The Railway Man approaches every scene with a sensitivity to the drama, high stakes, and true human insight into one of the most important days of the twentieth century, and one of most important moments of European and even world history. Beautiful <more>
cinematography by David Higgs, beautifully scored by Lorne Balfe. A real standout performance for her scenes is the young Ella Purnell, whose character I found to be instrumental to the entire arc of the movie. This is an important and enthralling film, for history buffs, Churchill fans, and lovers of period movies alike. Ten out of ten!
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. (by mereleaserdp)
Churchill is a beautifully layered movie about the joys and sorrows of being a human being. No one in this brilliant story overplays their part; it's such a pleasure to be introduced to each of them as it unfolds. Just as in life there are starts and stops here which captivate the viewer from the beginning and they are drawn in until the ending. For those who say the story might not be plausible simply pick up the newspaper or watch the news these days; anyone involving the human spirit is possible. It would be too brazen to explain the plot in detail because like a great book, a great <more>
play or a great novel you simply know it when you see it. Unfortunately, the mass audiences will not appreciate this movie as it will be well above their mindset. I absolutely loved it.
Churchill - Voted as one of the greatest Britons who ever lived (by brankovranjkovic)
Historical drama, very dialogue heavy, which is right up my street!Stars Brian Cox performing in a Shakespearian manner. This is not to be viewed as a biopic but was a snapshot of the 3 days leading up to D-Day. Winston was very resistant to the plan due to the potential high loss of life, he believed the D-Day mission was a bad idea and tries to convince the people around him. Throughout the film he is seen to be struggling with personal and political conflicts.Winston is portrayed as a great warrior, probably more so than he really was. Non-the–less he was extremely brave and has since <more>
been voted as one of the greatest Britons who ever lived.A great film that would make a great probably greater stage play.
I intentionally did not read other reviews prior to writing. I found the characters and the story very engaging. The story is well known but the way it is told is interesting and moves along nicely. The actors are excellent, the sound and picture quality is excellent. I really enjoyed this film.
A masterclass in acting by Cox (by Austin0206)
A bold biopic that tells the untold story of Churchill's opposition to operation overload - never retold by the man himself as he wrote his own history but is covered in Max Hastings book which this film has possibly drawn on. Brian Cox delivers a powerhouse performance and is in almost every scene - it's an uncompromising and brutal portrait that is warts and all. Watched this on the big screen at a preview and while some scenes play a little long and dusty the resolution is worth it - here was a man responsible for bringing peace to the world but with the weight of so many <more>
soldier's lives on his conscience - that so Tunzelman's script shows only came of age at the age of 70. When he finally realized his place in history was as the champion of the people and the British spirit - and not amongst the war generals and strategists. The film is beautifully photographed and Miranda Richardson delivers an awards worthy turn as Churchill's wife. Other supporting cast are strong even John Slattery with a bald head! A solid historical drama for fans of Kings Speech or The Iron Lady.
We sometimes forget some of the greatest leaders in history suffered from the devil that is depression. (by dpwilkins)
We sometimes forget some of the greatest leaders in history suffered from the devil that is depression. While not focusing on it, his struggle with the 'Black Dog' is acknowledged within the plot.I suspect a reasonable amount of licence has been taken but the nub of the story I would imagine is true. The Churchill's, Eisenhowers, King George's and Clemintine's of this world are treated as real, fallible human beings and indeed often flawed, but wholly accepting of their duty. Brian Cox makes an excellent Churchill. I see a couple of people have given this a one star <more>
review? Really not sure what movie they were watching...Well acted, shot and produced...this movie is well worth your time.
an unsubtle but beautifully produced character study of Winston Churchill (by CineMuseFilms)
While historians debate facts audiences judge movies on expressive qualities, human insight and entertainment value. The beautifully produced Churchill 2017 is being criticised for its interpretation of history, leaving the film's considerable cinematic qualities overlooked. Historical bio-pics are necessarily selective and reductive, and many are less than complimentary when heroic icons like Winston Churchill are put under the cinematic microscope. The opening scenes set the background for this version of the Churchill legend. Alone on a sweeping beach in June 1944, Churchill Brian <more>
Cox is deeply troubled by Allied Command plans to launch a massive military force onto the beaches of Normandy. It is a high-risk strategy to drive the Nazis out of France and turn the tide of the war. He watches the incoming waves, seeing them turn the colour of blood. The screen then turns to black and white as he walks across the beach that has suddenly turned into a battlefield strewn with the fallen of the First World War. Although ham-fisted, this imagery quickly sets the context of Churchill's state of mind: the haunting fears and failures of the disastrous 1915 Gallipoli Campaign. The rest of the film examines the political machinations of Churchill, Eisenhower and Montgomery during the frenetic six days leading to the landing at Normandy. Throughout this critical period, the chain-smoking Churchill is shown as suffering from depression, alcoholism and the tensions of a long-strained marriage. Like in many historical dramas, a young love story is incorporated to offset the imposing and cantankerous Churchill. But it is neither significant nor distracting. The entire impact of this film rests on Brian Cox's interpretation of the man still most revered by Britain. A spent-looking 70-year old, he is portrayed as a man still fighting the last war and ill-suited for military strategy in 1944. Both the British and American high commanders show little respect or tolerance for Churchill's meddling in the invasion plans, and even King George VI countermands his plan to be on board a naval ship close to the battle. His ever-patient wife Clementine Miranda Richardson was more nurse than companion as she used all her influence in focusing Churchill on what he did best: inspire the nation with a Prime Ministerial speech that remains a classic in poetically pugnacious war rhetoric. The small six-day window of history through which this film peers means that the story is compressed into an unsubtle and limited character study of Churchill and his relationship with Clementine. While the support cast are excellent, the performances by Cox and Richardson are outstanding and their synergy extraordinary. If there is a higher-order message in the film it may be that greatness and vulnerability can co-exist in equal measure: even the most inspiring leaders suffer the frailties of being human. Historians have every right to point and sneer, but this film should be judged as cinema, not history. And it is fine cinema indeed.
