Darkest Hour

There is a scene in this film where Winston Churchill seems to be the only one who is willing to fight the onslaught of the German Blitzkrieg. Everyone else in the War Cabinet is looking to surrender to Hitler in order to save their trapped soldiers at Dunkirk.

But he was on his own, single-handedly looking for answers. In truth, the Conservatives were trying to find a way to get him out of No. 10 Downing Street. They just were hoping that he would paint himself into a corner that he couldn’t get out of.
