Winston Churchill: Walking With Destiny -- Film Review
11:45 AM PST 11/15/2010 by Frank Scheck
Despite its title, "Winston Churchill: Walking With Destiny" is not a comprehensive biography of the famed British prime minister. Rather, it concentrates on the years 1940-1941, when Churchill was leading his country against Hitler’s Nazi forces during a tumultuous period that encompassed such pivotal events as the Battle of Britain, the Battle of Dunkirk and the Blitz. If there’s also on emphasis on his role in alerting the world to the mass slaughter of Jews -- it includes a rare recording of a 1941 BBC broadcast in which he discusses the issue -- that’s because the film comes from the auspices of Moriah Films, a division of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
Directed and co-written (with Rabbi Marvin Hier) by Richard Trask, the film, currently in theatrical release, will find its biggest audience via cable television and DVD exposure.
