DVD TV Show Reviews
This is a fairly good movie about Winston Churchill's years
during the war and after. It's not so much about the war itself as how he
came to certain decisions. It concentrates on Churchill the man rather than on
Churchill the leader. It is sort of a sequel to the movie "The Gathering
The movie is fairly well written and acted. These are not
big stars but do a great job anyway. My only complaint is that it jumps
around a lot between the war times and afterwards, when he and his wife are on
vacation near the beach and waiting to hear the election results. It can
be a little confusing.
If you are a fan of history, you will probably enjoy the movie.
They do a good job of showing Churchill as a person and husband, with all of his
faults. They don't do too much to show much insight about why he acted the way
he did, though. Perhaps if you saw the earlier movie, they would explain more
about the why. There were no extras on the DVD that I could see.
