Saturday 14th July 2018: DARKEST HOUR (PG)

SA Films]Steeple Ashton Village Hall
7.30pm (doors open at 7pm for refreshments)

Thank you to all those of you who came to see The Post – a rather different sort of film for us to show and many of our audience went out of their way to say how much they enjoyed it.  Darkest Hour hardly seems to need any introduction, many of you will have seen it, but I felt it is a film that represents our history and has won the enthusiasm of audiences and critics.  I felt I must bring it to the village.

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 played by Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman.  He faces 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.  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.  A British film with some of the best of our home grown actors, Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott-Thomas, Ronald Pickup and Lily James, to name a few.  This is a rousing and celebratory description of an iconic moment in our history.  Not to be missed!

We have been asked to remind our audience that we are required to ensure that the film we are showing is suitable for all members of our audience. We, therefore, ask that our audience check the film’s certification before bringing any younger members to our showings. Thank you.
