Darkest Hour: The Movie
Speaker: Gary Augustine, Historian
From May 25 to May 30, 1940, the fate of Britain teetered. Would the government under the leadership of newly appointed Prime Minister Winston Churchill seek peace with the German dictator Adolf Hitler? In a masterful movie The Darkest Hour, nominated for six Academy Awards including best picture, the tale of how one man, Winston Churchill, under frightful pressure from within his own cabinet, emerged from these blackest days to inspire the World to victory. Join Gary as he tells of the events portrayed in the movie: real and fictional. The Darkest Hour will be being shown at the Legacy Theatre on Monday, June 11th, 2:00 p.m.
