HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/4/27 – “It was a wonderful experience,” says Churchill star Brian Cox. “Great script. Fantastic writing. It was a delight. When you have such a good script as that, and you have such a good cast, it’s really great.”
“To be an icon is an extraordinary accolade” says Churchill star Miranda Richardson. “It’s everything that we live and breathe. It’s as old as time. New people coming up telling old stories and new stories. That’s what it’s all about and we’re so lucky to be part of that process.”
Churchill is set on WWII, on the days leading up to the D-Day landings in Normandy. The British Prime Minister is clashing arguments and strategies with his allied political opponents, General Eisenhower and Marshall Bernard Law Montgomery. The only support and comfort that Churchill gets, is from his beloved wife Clementine who manages to inspire him and give him the strength to finish this endeavor.
