The town of Churchill in northern Manitoba, on the Hudson Bay, is one of the best places in the world to see polar bears.
More of a historical drama than a straightforward biopic about its titular figure, Churchill looks at a defining moment in the career of Britain’s most famous Prime Minister with mixed, but sometimes commendable results. Substantively, Jonathan Teplitzky’s look at the lead-up to Operation Overlord in June of 1944 is rather threadbare and features a lot of great actors shouting overwritten lines of dialogue importantly at each other, but a strong central performance by Brian Cox as Winston Churchill and a distinct sense of momentum make it almost worthwhile.
They don’t hibernate in these parts–they celebrate! There’s nothing like a crisp Manitoba winter day to enjoy the great outdoors or soak up pure luxury in a world-class spa.
