The Gathering Storm

gathering stormHBO’s grand 2002 film of Winston Churchill’s life leading up to WWII. Outstanding cast featuring Albert Finney, Vanesssa Redgrave, Jim Broadbent, Linus Roache, Lena Headey, Derek Jacobi, Tom Wilkinson, Hugh Bonneville, and Tom Hiddleston. Kind of all full of itself and patriotic – Queen and Country and all that, but it certainly works with some of the finest actors on the planet. Wonderful attention to detail for example Churchill’s obsession with champagne and his love of jumpsuits. What’s not to love? 3.5 out of 5.
