Film: Churchill


five star
We haven’t been to the local Odeon for months, so it was good to break the habit today! We saw the afternoon matinee of Jonathan Teplitzky’s production of Churchill.

With so many ‘big’ films today being dependent on an over-use of CGI, it was good to actually watch something that relied solely on quality acting – and there was plenty of it going around! Brian Cox was simply mesmerising in the lead-role, whilst Miranda Richardson and John Slattery were both superb in their supporting roles.

Whatever your views about Churchill and his part in this country’s history, you won’t fail to be impressed by this latest portrayal.

Fantastic! Simply the best film we’ve seen in ages!
