The Gathering Storm Movie Review

Good TV but still obviously TV. Albert Finney has labored over his doppelganger of Winston Churchill, seen here in the years leading up to WWII, from when no one took him seriously in Parliament to his dominating stint as Prime Minister. I learned a lot about Chuchill in The Gathering Storm, but it still felt a bit like I was taking my medicine. Full of great performances but somehow soulless.


The Gathering Storm Rating

" Good "

Rating: NR, 2002
