Continuing the storyline of The Gathering Storm (2002), Churchill at War is a look at the former British prime minister's life and career at the end of WWII.
Brendan Gleeson has worked with five other actors who have all played Winston Churchill. He appeared in Braveheart (1995) and Troy (2004) with Brian Cox, and in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) with Robert Hardy, Timothy Spall, Michael Gambon, and Gary Oldman.
When Churchill visits an RAF base, and the squadron is scrambled, a Spitfire and a Hurricane are shown taking off as a pair. In fact, Hurricane and Spitfire operations were kept separate, and the two types would not have been mixed at (and scrambled from) the same dispersal, as depicted in the film.
