Today I saw a remarkable movie.
As you might guess, The Darkest Hour.
It is a movie about a world leader who is elected at a time of crisis.
Enemies of his nation were threatening it's very security.
As he comes to office, unwanted by the very members of his own party, he finds his political authority threatened by the elite who have brought the country to the dire position it found itself in.
He makes gaffes, both verbal and physical.
He is accused (and rightly so) of "shooting from the hip" verbally, saying things that upset the establishment.
He becomes aware that the people are in the dark about what is going on and he reaches out to them.
And he acts decisively.
The rest is history.
As you've probably heard elsewhere, this movie was great.
The characterizations by all were convincing.
Gary Oldman deserves an Oscar for this.
