Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour has a grand tour de force performance by Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill. But it's often thwarted by ostentatious direction and a tepid screenplay.

Oldman is the highlight of the over-sentimentalized movie. I didn't know how much music there was in the 2nd World War. Horns, strings, and piano keys are everywhere in Darkest Hour.
