Tonight, the SAG Awards comes on TV. This is the first year I get to participate and vote as a member. I was so excited about this and reviewing the screeners for voting consideration, I watched and reviewed them here on the Blog.
The Darkest Hour is a film about British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s rise to power during the bleakest period of World War II. Once thrust into his position by a reluctant King, Churchill is torn between his will to persevere in battle and his unsupportive political party’s insistence on peace negotiations with Hitler. To make the right decision, Winston must do what he has never done: connect with the common folk on a human, not political, level.
