Darkest Hour (2017)

A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty 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.

Directed by:   Joe Wright

Starring:   Gary Oldman, Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn, Kristin Scott Thomas, Stephen Dillane

Release date:   November 22, 2017

Did You Know?

Stephen Schwartz had envisioned Kristin Chenoweth as G(a)linda as writing her, but had written the vocal range for an alto/mezzo-soprano. However upon Kristin’s agreeing to the part, they changed her vocal ranges.
Whenever G(a)linda is acting as though she is perfect and good, she uses a classical soprano voice.
Whenever G(a)linda is being herself, she uses more of a mezzo-soprano voice.
