Darkest Hour – Churchill’s Grandson on WW2 Movie Historical Accuracy | Movies | entertainment

In his history of the Darkest Hour, Lord Somes said: “They are very accurate [when compared to that] A wonderful book by George Lucas called Five Days in London, which is about the formation of a government in the 1940’s. It obviously takes artistic license, because it’s a movie, but it’s true you had Dunkirk, you had this unusual rift inside the War Cabinet between Lord Halifax, Chamberlain and Jedi – on whether or not they should make a final attempt against Mussolini and thus Hitler. It takes great trips, like going to the subway and getting lost and all that. But this is done to make a point. “

The scene in question sees Churchill board a train to ask ordinary workers how they feel about the war, what action the government should take and if they are afraid. he added: “[That moment] It’s an allegory because the idea of ​​my grandfather on the subway is completely unbelievable. He had never ridden a bus in his life, but he definitely understood what people were thinking about the bus and the subway.”
