“Darkest Hour, Best Film of the Year” (attached picture courtesy of http://www.libertylawsite.org/2017/12/22/darkest-hour-best-film-of-the-year/). Would you agree?
“Darkest Hour”, a 2017 British biographical war drama film directed by Joe Wright, written by Anthony McCarten, stared by Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill, and followed his early days as Prime Minister while Hitler closes in on Britain during World War II, shows Winston Churchill in his finest one. In a moment of what could have been crippling self-doubt and worry that he might be failing the Kingdom’s people as he struggles to compose a speech, his wife Clementine Churchill (played by Kristin Scott Thomas) tells him:
“You are strong because you are imperfect. You are wise because you have doubts. From this uncertainty the wisest words will come.”
“Life is perfect
because it is imperfect
because we can inspect fault trees
in the green woods of our stars.”
