Script to Screen: Darkest Hour
During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour. As the threat of invasion looms and the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, the Allied army is cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk. The fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister: Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman). While working to outflank his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds.
Directed by Joe Wright, Darkest Hour presents the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940, during which Churchill’s courage and leadership changed the course of world history.
UCSB Script to Screen will host Producer and UCSB alumna Lisa Bruce for a post-screening Q&A. The event will be moderated by Pollock Theater Director Matt Ryan.
This event is free but a reservation is recommended in order to guarantee a seat.
Tickets will be released on Monday, October 23 at 11:00 AM.
