Description

With more than 30 years of iconic performances as both historical and fictional figures, British-born Gary Oldman ranks among the most versatile and accomplished actors in contemporary film.

Double Feature:

DARKEST HOUR, 2017, Focus Features, 125 min. Dir. Joe Wright. Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation and attempt to change the course of world history. With Kristin Scott Thomas. “Hidden behind fake jowls and a receding hairline, Gary Oldman delivers one of the great performances of his career as Winston Churchill.” - Peter Debruge, Variety

TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY, 2011, Focus Features, 122 min. Dir. Tomas Alfredson. The long-awaited feature film version of John le Carré’s classic bestselling novel is set in England in 1973 as Cold War tensions wreak havoc on international relations. After a Hungarian mission goes bloodily awry, the head of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, known as Control (John Hurt), is forced out of the agency along with his top lieutenant, George Smiley (Oscar nominee Gary Oldman). But Smiley is soon rehired in secret to identify a Soviet mole at SIS, and as the list of suspects narrows, the emotional and physical tolls on the players enmeshed in the deadly international spy game escalates. Costarring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hardy and Colin Firth.

Discussion between films with actor Gary Oldman.
