Darkest Hour

Dario Marianelli composed the original score for ‘Darkest Hour’, which stars Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill, directed by Joe Wright.

“During World War II, as Adolf Hitler’s powerful Wehrmacht rampages across Europe, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Neville Chamberlain (Ronald Pickup), is forced to resign, recommending Sir Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) as his replacement. But even in his early days as the country’s leader, Churchill is under pressure to commence peace negotiations with Hitler or to fight head-on the seemingly invincible Nazi regime, whatever the cost. However difficult and dangerous his decision may be, Churchill has no choice but to shine in the country’s darkest hour.”

Maggie Rodford was score supervisor and Mark Willsher was the music editor for the production.

Dario recieved a nomination for ‘Best Original Music’ in the 2018 BAFTAs.
