  • Gathering Storm/Into the Storm: Churchill at War

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Dec 1, 2009

    Includes:The Gathering Storm (2002) Into the Storm: Churchill at War (2009) The Gathering Storm Today, Winston Churchill is regarded as one of the great leaders of his time, and a hero for helping to guide Great Britain through the crises of World War II. But in the 1930s, Churchill's place in history hardly seemed assured; his early warnings against the growing threat of the Third Reich were taken seriously by few of his contemporaries, and he suffered through a variety of personal, professional, and economic setbacks before German attacks on England gave credence to his theories about Hitler's desire to overtake Europe, and gave Churchill the opportunity to rise to the greatness that was his destiny. The Gathering Storm is a made-for-television biographical drama based on Churchill's memoirs about his life leading up to World War II. Albert Finney stars as Winston Churchill, Vanessa Redgrave plays his wife, Clementine, and Derek Jacobi appears as Stanley Baldwin. Jim Broadbent and Ronnie Barker co-star. Produced for the BBC, The Gathering Storm received its American premier on the HBO premium cable network in the spring of 2002. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide Into the Storm: Churchill at War A sequel to HBO's award-winning film The Gathering Storm, Thaddeus O'Sullivan's Into the Storm stars Brendan Gleeson as the intrepid British leader whose fiery rhetoric inspired Allied forces to fight back against Hitler's Germany to with everything they've got. As the flames of war spread throughout Europe, Winston Churchill rose to the call and became a national hero, disregarding the detrimental effects his actions had on both his political career and his marriage to lifelong supporter Clemmie (Janet McTeer) in a single-minded effort to defeat one of history's greatest tyrants. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

    Herein lies the ideological struggle of two individuals. Behind the camera stands Kate Churchill, a Boston-based documentarian with a rock-solid confidence in the transformative power of yoga; her subject, however -- Manhattan journalist Nick Rosen -- espouses deep-seated skepticism and resistance to yoga as a system of thought and physio-spiritual regeneration. Responding to a challenge by Churchill, Rosen undertakes an on-camera investigation of yoga, but in lieu of becoming an instant convert as one might expect, he begins to uncover manifold inconsistencies and contradictions that distance him from the center of it. The filmmaker and her subject thus experience a rocky and multi-layered conflict of beliefs, identities, and lifestyles. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
