Winston Churchill: Walking with Destiny
(2011, 101 minutes)
Director: Richard Tank
This compelling documentary film highlights Churchill's earlier political years, focusing on the period just prior to his ascent to prime minister through the end of 1941 when America entered World War II. It examines why Winston Churchill's legacy continues to be relevant in the twenty-first century and explores why his leadership remains inspirational to current-day political leaders and diplomats. Narrated by Sir Ben Kingsley and with commentary by historian John Lukacs and Churchill's official biographer Sir Martin Gilbert, among others.
