June 1944. Allied Forces stand on the brink: a massive army is secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, poised to re-take Nazi-occupied Europe. One man stands in their way: Winston Churchill. Behind the iconic figure and rousing speeches: a man who has faced political ridicule, military failure and a speech impediment. An impulsive, sometimes bullying personality - fearful, obsessive and hurting. Fearful of repeating, on his disastrous command, the mass slaughter of 1915, when hundreds of thousands of young men were cut down on the beaches of Gallipoli. Obsessed with fulfilling historical greatness: his destiny. Exhausted by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who has resisted Hitler's Blitzkrieg. Should the D-Day landings fail, he is terrified he'll be remembered as an architect of carnage. Political opponents sharpen their knives. General Eisenhower and Field Marshal Montgomery are increasingly frustrated by Churchill's attempts to stop...
The song Happy Days Are Here Again came out in 1929. It is unlikely that the two daughters of Churchill who were in their teens at the time would have been bouncing along to a song that was ten years out of date. By then, American swing was the most popular among the youth. See more »
Absolutely embarrassed for these writers and filmmakers
I have seen a lot of bad movies. I've seen a lot of movies that revise history. Never before in my life have I seen a movie that I deemed so atrocious and disgusting that I felt the need to write a user review on IMDb. Until now.
Churchill takes one of this century's greatest men and turns him into a caricature. For all the amazing, courageous, and poetic things Winston Churchill did in his life, this movie makes no mention. Instead, it portrays him as a senile buffoon who fights against the plans for D-Day as nothing more than a bumbling idiot, when in actuality he was one of the leading men trying to get it to take place. He was a hero, not just in Britain but all over the western free world. I imagine there will be a lot of people offended and deeply upset by this portrayal. That's not the sad part, though.
The sad part is that people who do not know actual history will go into this movie and watch it, and come out thinking this was the real man. This movie is a character, reputation, and legacy assassination of one of the greatest men this world has known, flawed as he was. Tell everyone you know that has seen this movie to research him on their own and draw their own conclusions about his life. I implore you. Don't let these awful writers ruin a man's legacy on a whim.
