Following the success of the recent screening of 'The Greatest Showman', which raised £95 in donations to the HMP Send Chaplaincy Annual Collection, the new series of Film Nights continues with the excellent 'Darkest Hour'.
The film stars Gary Oldman, who won a 'Leading Actor' Oscar award for his performance as Churchill, as well as BAFTA and Golden Globe awards. This choice reflects the fact that November is the month of Remembrance Sunday and it is also the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War.
For those who may not have seen the film when shown in the Cinema:
'During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. While manoeuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.'
As before, there is no charge and tickets are not required. Just turn up at St. Pius Hall on Friday 23rd November at 7.30 PM with you own refreshments - all are welcome.
