Description

  • Masterpiece: Churchill's Secret

    Set in England during the summer of 1953, Churchill's Secret tells a little-known part of Winston Churchill's great life story. Prime Minister for the second time, Churchill (Michael Gambon, Harry Potter, Fortitude) suffers a life-threatening stroke, which his inner circle conspired to hide from the public. Beautifully directed by three-time Emmy® nominee Charles Sturridge (Shackleton, Brideshead Revisited) the film charts the course of Winston's remarkable recovery and investigates the strain that his great public service wrought upon his private life.

    Told from the point of view of his family, his doctor, the men he championed and, most touchingly, his young nurse, Churchill's Secret follows Winston's extraordinary battle to recover, casting an honest light on the tensions within his brilliant and dysfunctional family.
