Churchill is the untold story of D-Day but its also the untold story of the main character-Churchill. Often in film , its easy to dress an actor or actress up in costume to make them look like the person being portrayed.
This is never the case in Churchill, we never actually see any fighting, even though Churchill desperately wants to lead men and be at the front line with them. This film doesn’t romanticise war or Churchill, It simply portrays the man in all his dimensions, flaws an all, its a refreshing look at an icon and a great Briton and Brian Cox’ performance never slips into caricature. Miranda Richardson potrays an exceedingly strong woman and James Purefoy is impeccable as is the film.
