Brian Cox visually dominates the screen as Winston Churchill, which last week ended its run at the Quad Cinema.

I doubt that Brian Cox will get anything even close to an Oscar nod for his portrayal of a man the UK has labeled “the greatest Briton who ever lived”. From the moment he appears on screen, in what seems to be a fevered dream, standing on the edge of n English beach as the waters roll up to the shore glowing a deep crimson, Cox as Churchill visually and aurally dominates the film and does not let go. Not wanting to make the mistake he made in the Battle of Gallipoli during the First World War Churchill balks at the plans General EIsenhower and Bernard Montgomery, England’s Field Marsh to the plans they have for D-Day. They, on the other hand, see him as something of an old coot who may be past his prime and may not have the insight needed to win the war, and largely ignore his calls for caution. As Churchill’s political and inner life unravel, so does his marriage to Clementine (Miranda Richardson, really drawing a fully fleshed out character from her pat scenes) who herself sees a man imploding into nothing. As with all docudramas and biopics this one takes its liberties to draw out the inner conflicts of one of the most famous and celebrated personages of England’s recent history, and while on occasion it veers dangerously close to schmaltz — for example, when a secretary, played by Ella Purnell, makes her own small mark in a speech that moves Churchill — it always remains fairly true to the historical figure and the man in equal measure. Now, if only we could have our own, and not this mess of a leader, all would be well in the nation.

Cburchill is still playing in theaters, but look for it soon on Netflix and other VOD platforms.
