I don't have much to add to the great reviews this movie earned and agree that Gary Oldman
definitely deserved the Oscar.  I also think Lily James and Kristin Scott Thomas were excellent
in their supporting roles.

The thing that amazed me the most about this movie was the casting.  I would never
have guessed that Gary Oldman would be such a brilliant choice to play
Winston Churchill.  I would have thought there would be at least a dozen British actors who would
have been more logical choices.

In any case, it's a great film and ties in well with "Dunkirk".
