A British wartime drama depicting the toughest moment during the reign of one of the country’s most iconic figures is at the Curzon this week.

Darkest Hour (PG) follows Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) as he contemplates either negotiating a renewed peace treaty or declaring war on Hitler’s Nazi regime.

With the threat of a Nazi invasion on British shores looming, Churchill must face up to a sceptical king and a political party turning against him to rally his nation to victory.

The film is hotly tipped to pick up multiple awards at the Oscars later in the year, with Oldman already scooping the best actor Golden Globe for his superb portrayal of the former Prime Minister.

Darkest Hour will be screened at the Curzon on Friday and will run at various times until January 25.

Tomorrow will see the screening of cult British cinema thriller The Hitch-Hiker (12A).

Based on the true case of psychopathic murderer Billy Cook, the film sees two friends pick up a hitch-hiker on the way to a fishing trip.

But their enjoyable break soon turns into a nightmarish road trip from which they must escape.

A final chance to catch star-studded high-tempo musical The Greatest Showman (PG) will be on offer tomorrow (Thursday) celebrating the life of circus founder PT Barnum.

On Tuesday a a live performance of Rigoletto by The Royal Opera will be screened.
