Trump and Churchill’s Parallels

After winning at the BAFTAs, Gary Oldman should rightly also win the Oscar for best actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour. The picture surely deserves consideration for best film as well.

The film depicts the utter failure of the Neville Chamberlain government, and the rise to power of Prime Minister Churchill. It portrays May 1940, when the Nazis were sweeping through Western Europe, and Chamberlain has lost because he proved to be perilously unprepared and tried to placate Hitler.
