Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson and John Slattery star in this well-acted but underwhelming portrayal of the agonising private doubts of Winston Churchill as the clock ticks down to the D-Day landings in 1944. Cox joins Albert Finney, Richard Burton, Michael Gambon, Timothy Spall and John Lithgow, who have all played Churchill, and does a solid job, with both gravitas and mischief. Sadly, the film is in places simplistic, generic and poorly-written, which fails to do justice to the superb cast.
