Why Gary Oldman never wanted to play Winston Churchill, and how 'Darkest Hour' changed his mind

    Why Gary Oldman never wanted to play Winston Churchill, and how 'Darkest Hour' changed his mind
    You could teach a pretty good course on modern British history using the movies of Gary Oldman. The syllabus would include a section on anarchy in the U.K and Thatcher's England, featuring Sid and Nancy. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (for which Oldman was nominated for an Oscar) could illustrate Britain's changing role on the postwar stage.
