Step into the battle-worn shoes of our country’s Greatest Briton when CHURCHILL debuts on digital download on 9 October and on Blu-ray and DVD on 16 October, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment UK.
Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky, and with a screenplay by historian Alex von Tunzelmannm, CHURCHILL stars Brian Cox in the title role, alongside Miranda Richardson as his wife Clemmie, John Slattery as President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ella Purnell as Churchill’s assistant, and James Purefoy as King George VI.
In June 1944, four years after the evacuation of Dunkirk, Winston Churchill finalises plans for the largest amphibian invasion known to man: D-Day. With time ticking and the horror of lives wasted in past battles weighing heavily on his shoulders, we see 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 and lead his nation into battle once again.
