As the WWII drama Churchill arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on 16 October, we are celebrating by giving away DVDs to three lucky readers – one of whom will also receive a pair of tickets to the infamous Churchill War Rooms in Westminster.
In Churchill, Brian Cox (Zodiac, Braveheart) delivers the powerhouse performance of his career, providing an intimate portrayal of the British Prime Minister during the breathtaking 96 hours before the World War II invasion of Normandy. On the dawn of D-Day, with time ticking and the horror of lives wasted in past battles weighing heavily on his shoulders, we see Winston Churchill in his most urgent moment. Exhausted by years of war and plagued with the fear of repeating the mistakes that led to the disastrous Gallipoli campaign in WWI, Churchill must draw power from his unflinchingly loyal wife Clemmie, (impeccably portrayed by Miranda Richardson – Sleepy Hollow, The Young Victoria), and lead his nation into battle once again. With a screenplay by historian Alex von Tunzelmannm, director Jonathan Teplitzky (The Railway Man, Burning Man) has provided the most absorbing, intimate insight into the life of this nation’s greatest leader to date.
One winner will get the chance to walk in the footsteps of the man himself at Churchill War Rooms in Westminster; explore the underground headquarters that acted as the top-secret nerve centre from where Churchill and his inner circle helped determine the course of the Second World War; and get close to artefacts revealing Churchill’s personal and political life in the Churchill Museum, which uncovers the influences and pressures that shaped his life, leadership and legacy.
