The trailers have made it look cheap and tacky, like an ITV drama.
Which is sad, because Brian Cox is an outstanding choice to play Churchill.

Build up to D Day and Churchill's supposed last minute doubts. I was all set to go and see it but I read an article (sorry I can't remember by whom) saying it was riddled with factual inaccuracies, especially the basic premise of the film. By June 1944 Churchill had put aside his previous doubts and was committed to Overlord.
