Churchill follows Britain’s iconic Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the days before the infamous D-Day landings in June 1944.  As allied forces stand on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe, they await Churchill’s decision on whether the invasion will actually move ahead. Fearful of repeating his mistakes from World War I on the beaches of Gallipoli, exhausted by years of war, plagued by depression and obsessed with fulfilling historical greatness, Churchill is also faced with constant criticism from his political opponents; General Eisenhower and Field Marshal Montgomery. Only the unflinching support of Churchill’s brilliant, unflappable wife Clementine can halt the Prime Minister’s physical and mental collapse and help lead him to greatness.

Churchill is directed by Jonathan Teplitzky (The Railway Man, Marcella) and written by British historian and author Alex von Tunzelmann (Medici: Masters of Florence) in her feature debut. The cast  is led by Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy, X-Men 2, Zodiac, War & Peace, Troy) as the legendary Winston Churchill, Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter, Testament of Youthas the Prime Minister’s beloved wife and confident Clemmie Churchill, John Slattery (Mad Men, Captain America Civil War) as General Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied D-Day operations, and rising-star Ella Purnell (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Tarzan) as Churchill’s secretary.

 

 

Churchill was developed with the assistance of the BFI, with financing from Silver Reel, Lipsync and Creative Scotland, and will be released in UK cinemas on 16th June 2017.
