Movie Info

Richard Trank's biographical film focuses on the 20 months between Churchill's ascent to prime minister and the American entry into the Second World War at the end of 1941 and the beginning of 1942. But to do that, it must first carry us back to 1930, when Winston Churchill was at the low point of a three-decade political career; still holding a seat in Parliament but out of the government and also out of favor with the leadership of the British Conservative Party, he was in isolation --

Tranks's film, which should be catnip to students of military strategy, brings the great man's influence on the course of world events into sharp relief, even though Churchill's name is not mentioned for long stretches of the film.

A classy documentary perhaps more suited to classrooms and the History Channel than to theaters, " Winston Churchill: Walking With Destiny" nonetheless serves as an informative look back at one of the 20th century's most celebrated figures.

To its credit, and perhaps to the disappointment of some, docu never deviates from its central focus; its treatment of the Holocaust is always secondary to its portrait of an unquestionably great statesman.

A handsomely produced, television-scale documentary with a split personality.
